SEVENTH GENOCIDE "Toward Akina", ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE ITALIANS' NEW MASTERPIECE!


When thinking of post-black metal, we all usually think of dissonant and morbid guitar patterns, fast drumming and that long abused "religious" feeling which has been for a long time the trademark of the actual genre. Alternatively, we think of the shoegazy style of bands such as Alcest, Lantlos and all those others who have mixed the genre with a more "rock-oriented" sound. That is why, after so many years, is always incredibly amazing when bands are capable of creating a completely new way of intending the genre. Over the black-metal roots of the style, Seventh Genocide have found their own voice and took the definition of "post-black metal" to a brand new level. Forget dissonances, forget shoegaze. If Pink Floyd could have played black metal, there is a huge possibility that their sound could have been not so far from what these Italians have to offer.
