The Advent

Where has this been all my life? Dai hailed from the Czech Republic and were sonic cousins of Master's Hammer, the greatest metal band the country had to offer. In fact Dai sound so similar to Master's Hammer, I was a bit shocked to discover they weren't connected. Like the aforementioned band, Dai played deeply eccentric occult proto-black metal/death metal/space thrash, angular and mystical. The Advent was Dai's only album and it was released in 1993.

I'm listening to this now, heavy as lead. Eccentric lead.

I love Master's Hammer, so I'm sure this'll be great.
The Chicory Tip from the other day was good, too.

Holy shit Aesop, you my saviour.

Recently snagged an original pressing of The Jilmence Occultist (Hammer's BM Operetta) on vinyl and have been trapped in the Czech-nationalist, proto-symphonic black metal trance ever since.

This post has quite possibly made my life.
