Corporeal

I lost touch with my strange friend Shannon. Turns out she up and moved to Baltimore and got married. Even stranger is her and her husband, Dustin, started a Black Metal band exactly the sort Cosmic Hearse goes crazy over. You know, weird, lo-fi, fumbling, mysterious. They decided on the name Corporeal, and Shannon went to work on the logo. When Dustin informed me they were sending a copy of their first tape release my way I was stricken with anticipation. When it arrived I was not disappointed in the least. To those who share my love of raw, peculiar Black Metal recordings I have one word, Corporeal.

Thank you much for this muddled little gem! Black metal the way it should be played/recorded.
Well done!

having only known shannon to play warbling schitzo druggie folk in crackstem rose i was pretty blown away when i listened to these guys on the gayspace, which i urge you to look at cuz there's a great picture of them playing live and instead of using a cement block or piece of wood nailed to carpet to hold her bass drum in place, shannon uses a fat kid.

This is great. They have some stuff up on ebay, I bid on the demo after downloading this here. I love black metal with loud, meandering basslines. This reminds me a little bit of Those Who Caress the Pale, maybe if Aldrahn did the vocals...
