Bal-Sagoth - Starfire Burning upon the Ice-Veiled Throne of Ultima Thule

Elync's Recommended Winter Listening List Pt. II

Across Tundras - Old World Wanderer

Elync's Recommended Winter Listening List Pt. I

Although not quite winter-sounding, this album is certainly creative, and gives feelings of cold desert night. Clever, and creative. Unique stoner metal, if you could call it that.
Comments appreciated!
Stay tuned for the next installment of Elync's Recommended Winter Listening List!

Elync's Recommended Winter Listening List

Good evening folks.

In the next several months, the weather will become more to my liking... -cold-.
In celebration, I will be uploading a large sum of albums that generally seem to fit with the winter season. The albums listed and linked will either be a direct link to winter, or vaguely reminisce of winter.
The albums will range from popular standards by the artists, to obscure releases of one standard or another. Since this is not "Metal on Mediafire" but rather "Music on Mediafire", there will be a slight variety ranging from modal jazz, folk, electronica, and of course, black metal, and so on and so forth yeahyeahyeahyeah. I hand picked all of these albums, and I hope you enjoy each and everyone!

I will do my best to upload regularly, but seeing as it's a lot of albums, they may take a while to get up here.

So, without further ado:

Pensées Nocturnes - Grotesque

Gnere: Black metal, influenced by some neo-classical and possibly the combined evil of the entire world.

Tourtured, melencholic, beautiful, horrifying... These are only a few words that can describe the emotional and atmospheric rollercoaster this album puts you through. It mixes the best elements of classical, depressive black metal and horror movie soundtracks(and not your average shitty slasher horror, like the sort of movie that makes you reluctant to leave your bed in the night lest something may be hiding around the corner) into one creepy-ass Black metal record. Listen to at night...If you want some of the most horrific nightmares of your life. It may start off Bombastic, but trust me the opening track is nothing compared to the horror that will eventually ensue throughtout the record. I wouldn't be surprised if this record was damned or cursed with all the supernatural evil one could fathom...

1.Vulgum Pecus03:11



Of the Wand and the Moon

Amazing. think Agalloch, but without the metal influence. Atmospheric, Emotional, Memorable and Catchy.

Alkemyst - Through Painful Lanes

Genre: Progressive Power Metal

Imagine Timelord, but with the poly rhythm of Meshuggah, but since it's power metal, it's no boring monotone chugs! Djent done right.

1.The Beast Within06:58
2.Another You05:37
3.When the Morning Comes08:28
4.Enter the Carnival03:44
5.Restless Show07:07

9.Eagle Fly Free (Helloween cover)05:14
10.Mighty Powerfool (Japanese bonus)04:57


Kvist-For Kunsten Maa Vi Evig Vike

Genre: Black Metal

Kvlt, gr1m AND tr00, this is overall some what a mix of Darkthrone's dark melodies such as Transylvanian Hunger, Mayhem's aggression and Emperors synths. Pretty bitchin. Kvist means twig in Norwegian. Interesting.

1.Ars Manifestia05:15
2.Forbannet Være Jorden Jeg Går På05:51
5.Min Lekam Er Meg Blott En Byrde09:58

Ufomammut-Godlike Snake

Genre: Stoner/Doom/Psychadelic

Holy crap, imagine stoner doom (crushing riffs, distorted vocals) but on every psychedlic known to man and also a bit schizo! Tons of oscilatting fuzz, bizarre lyrics and hypnotizing vibes. May take a listen or too as the record makes you somewhat high yourself. Okay not really, but it takes a second or two to realize what the hell is going on.

1.UFO Pt. 104:42
11.Where? (bonus video}04:01



Ea- Ea Taesse

Genre: Funeral Doom

Pretty good Russian Funeral Doom here. This isn't quite as raw or sinister sounding as say Thergothon, but what it lacks in sinisterness it makes up for in beautifully melencholic synths, crushing riffs and soul sweeping atmosphere.

2.Mea Ta Souluola12:48
3.Ea Taesse22:54
