Gotta give props to Cherd of Doom, AngryMetalGuy writer extraordinaire for turning me on to (0). Was scam scanning his wishlist and spotted the S/T debut by these fiends. Bought it. Loved it.
When I saw SkamHan drop, it was kind of a no brainer, just jumped in and did it......
"The best-kept secret of the Danish underground - A hallucinating Progressive Black Metal offering"
In rousing dark euphoria, Danish progressive black metal enigma (0) lifts the veil for their debut album SkamHan, a lucid dream wrapped in growling dark melancholia. Seven explosive and oppressive tracks presented in a frenzied mania blossom into a hallucinating mixture of black, drone and post metal spiced with intense sludge and progressive influences. The opening track, “Tyndere end Hud”, infatuates with intoxicating riffs and forceful growls, drawing its listener into the somber void. Blasphemy, pain and gloomy nothingness dominate the luminous expanse of SkamHan and symbolize the extreme soundscapes in an opus of darkness. The eponymous track crucially grows to a cathartic vibrating atmosphere and ruptures in energetic parts due to the agonized, bloodcurdling growls. The atmospheric expansiveness of the final track, “Alle Renses”, reminds that the routes of (0) remain labyrinthine. The elusive quintet bites the ear of the listener and drips with blackened obscurity.
Had to buy my digital copy on Bandcamp Friday to fully support this band even though I have had the physical copy since it was released 2 years ago. This was one of my top albums of the 2010s. Have not heard anything this good in a long time so many elements on display here. love the whole concept behind this band as well as the puns in all song titles. Can't wait to see what's next from these masterminds sightless_wisdom
An absolutely monumental album about death and loss that came into my life at a time when I'm dealing with death and loss. There's little I can say about this record that hasn't already been said. It's my AOTY and I don't see there being much contest. Colin Kauffman
This is really cool shit! J.B. (The one man army) pulled off the best debut of the year so far, hands down! Jakob shreds mesmerizing riffs & solos, not to mention composing & playing all else that make this album as amazing as it is. I Fuckin love it too much! 🤘🏿KVAEN🤘🏿 IVR
