• wold Badb (CD, £11.50)

    label: Crucial Blast Records

    Originally released on cassette in 2004 in a limited edition of 100 copies, Badb is one of the earliest releases from the Saskatchewan-based black metal / noise duo Wold. The nine tracks around the mythology of the war goddess— the specter of doom that lurks at the edge of the battlefield. Beginning at the heart of a roiling black blizzard, Badb proceeds through a charred nightmare soundscape of icy, corroded black metal riffs, fractured blasting, melancholic melodies blurred and smeared into malevolent new shapes, and scathing witch-screams ripping through the blackness, all drowned in Merzbow-ian levels of feedback and distortion abuse. Available on CD for the first time ever, this early example of Wold’s psychotropic black metal / noise terror comes with all-new artwork from Pippi Zornoza. Tracks : 1. Her Voice I 2. Badb 3. Nine Virgins of Badb 4. The Cold Windís Grasp 5. The Wind Shall Carry Her Message 6. Evocation of Badb 7. We Kill for Her 8. Final Offering 9. Her Voice II
