Slidhr

Slidhr is an excellent one-man band from Ireland that sounds a lot like Norway '93, which is a good thing. Some De Mysteriis-era Mayhem with some Celtic Frost via Darkthrone moments thrown in, an oasis in a desert of boring "depressive" one-man black metal bands releasing tapes. This was released on in a limited run of 300 in 2006 and it is high quality darkness. I want Slidhr to do a proper full-length, I'd buy the fuck out of that shit.

That's a band compared to three favorite bands (and my favorite album by one of those favorite bands).

Deal me in.

Why is the depressive-suicidal black metal micro-genre so pervasive?

The failure to success rate isn't any higher when compared to other black metal types.
Maybe it's because depressive BM sounds "deep">
