Brazil has produced some of my more recent favorite black metal bands. Draugurz, Inmitten des Waldes, Geheimnis, Namelezz Project, Forest Poetry to name a few. Here are 3 demos by 3 of the best. Enjoy.
Ghash (like all the bands in this post) is one-man concern. The sole proprietor being Oghor. Ghash's demo "Forests of Perpetual Pain" contains 3 repetitive and eerie songs. The sound is distant and lonely, the guitars are slathered in effects and the result is downright hypnotic. This was released by Gugnir productions, a great label for this type of Brazilian high weirdness.
Thallium could be called the Brazilian Graveland and is the work of a solitary figure named Werewolf. Thallium is a politically motivated NS band. "Gevauden" is the first demo by Thallium, and in my opinion, the best. Thallium followed up "Gevauden" with the demo "A Howling of a Thousand Years" and also contributed to a 3 way split tape with fellow Brazilian NS bands, Evil and S.A.R. titled "Chaos to Unleash a New Age." Thallium's music is clumsy and ambling, not unlike the earliest work by Graveland.
Lastly we have Woodsmarch, the work of an individual going by M. Vag. Woodsmarch plays black metal of the plodding and depressive variety ala Burzum. Woodsmarch employs the shimmering guitar tones which seem to be commonplace in the Brazilian black metal bands. This was first released in a very small run by Gungnir Productions and was later reissued by Underground Productions.
