On its sophomore album, the UK’s Dragged Into Sunlight works to diversify its grimy, blood-soaked sound, but brings less intensity in the process.
This album was a moderate let-down after how much I enjoyed Hatred for Mankind. In terms of voice I think you’re spot on, while their approach to making grim and “evil” sounding music has changed, they still permeate all that extra space they’ve created with that same gloom and doom.
Also, consider checking out Bastard Sapling’s “Dragged From Our Restless Trance” from Virginia’s Forcefield Records. It’s the black metal project of ex-Cannabis Corpse guitarist Drew Goldi and might be (not that this was a phenomenal year for Black Metal) the BM album of the year. The band handles transitions between Drudkh forest dwelling BM, early Darkthrone, and channel a very Immortal or Ulver sound as well (The drum tone is also super reminiscent of Dissection). And I know, I know I’m making this sound like a macedoine that might seem more disjointed than delectable, but trust, well worth your time. It’s a really seamless and overlooked album released this November that has been unfortunately lost in the end of year round-up hubbub.
