[6] Xasthur - To Violate the Oblivious

Xasthur is an ambient black metal band driven by the single person Malefic. Xasthur's music is hypnotic, empty, and dark. This is my favorite album by them for three reasons. First of all, the song "Dreams Blacker Than Death." Second of all, the song "Walker of Dissonant Woods." And lastly, everything else is solid. I don't consider Xasthur's music depressing in the usual sense. They cause an empty lifeless feeling. However for the last track on this album, "Walker of Dissonant Woods," I make an exception. That track truly is depressing and beautiful. Xasthur has other really good albums and especially some good splits but when it comes to a solid full-release this is my pick. Worth checking out the sample song to see if you like it. If you are a patient person go ahead and check out the playlist. Check out the good deals on amazon. Next time you make some purchases overlap the shipping and you could get the CD for under $5.

Archives Rating: 77% (7)
My Rating: 91%
Note: Xasthur is notorious for being a band people either love or hate. Then there are the open minded individuals who aren't really that into it but give it respectable average ratings. Well, clearly, I'm one of those who loves Xasthur so yeah. They are in my top 5 bands list, below Shining.

Sample song was a nice symphony. It was actually quite peaceful and tame

This is the album that made me like Xasthur; it's the only one I like mind, Malefic's other stuff is a little boring to me if truth be told. Wrest is the king of the US bedroom bands IMO.

do you know of anything similar to this IB? this could potentially score you +3 rep if you can find this soothing and symphonic style ambient metal

serious money to be had lol

I got this CD in the mail and the case was all smashed up. I replaced it with a new case and it looks nice besides the dumb hole they poked through it. The CD has a bonus song on it:
10. Reflecting Hateful Energy

I wasn't anticipating it but I remembered it as one of my favorite songs so it is pretty cool. Good deal.
