Jason Griffith My old friend Owen plays guitar/vokills....these guys are original...and make beautiful music full of despair. Have their entire discography...just waiting on 'Entropy Mantra' to come in the mail and it will be complete....for now. I hope they continue to produce...it all gets better and better. Cheers.

Telephone The Boys Excellent NYBM featuring the drummer of Krallice. Atmospheric and melodic, but with a solid european backbone. Favorite track: Mazzaroth.

Jonas One of my favorite USBM releases. A cascadian projectile of fascinating beauty and brilliance. These riffs and time changes will change the way you listen to BM, even if you don't notice it at first.

Wallow Within No matter how much you liked their previous work, which I guess is a lot, this will leave you speachless. There's absolutely no reason for Anicon to not be at the very top of the Black Metal league. Choose ANY song off this record and see yourself.
Ippocalyptica thumbnail
Ippocalyptica Anicon is to this day far more overlooked than should be the case for a band of such immense talent and vision. There are not many American black metal albums that sound like Exegeses, and not many black metal bands that so aptly straddle the line between technicality and emotion. This is well worth the investment of time that it will take to fully absorb its majesty. Furious riffs populate every song, and boundless energy is the order of the day. Fantastic! Favorite track: From Teeth, From Tongue.

This summer we welcome a project that has long been on our radar, Brooklyn black metal band Anicon. Although we already considered them to be sort of extended family (drummer Lev Weinstein is a part of Krallice while bassist Alexander DeMaria performs as part of the Yellow Eyes live lineup) we are none-the-less quite pleased to welcome Anicon as a proper part of the label family as they join us to present their first full-length album, Exegeses.

Founding members Nolan Voss and Owen Rundquist began writing material together for this project in 2010, at that time planning to name their first EP Anicon while the project itself would remain nameless, allowing the EP to stand as a singular expression. Quickly the project developed into a full band that began writing more material, so the Anicon name would be repurposed.

Exegeses is the result of constant writing over the course of two years. And although other material was written and recorded through this time, the pieces chosen for the album were selected to work together as a single statement, similar to the original EP but in a significantly more developed fashion. The works on Exegeses represent what is very much a new stage for Anicon. Though they are thoroughly rooted in the US black metal sound, their style reaches further into the realm of the more technical. Favoring elaborately composed pieces that still retain every bit of fury and visceral energy that black metal is fundamentally founded upon.

The album was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Colin Marston at Menegroth in November 2015. It will be presented as a gatefold LP with stunning photography by Kari Greer. A digital download code will be included. The vinyl has an expected release date of July 2016, while a CD edition will be released simultaneously in Europe via Avantgarde Music
