Only Death Is Real #3

Posted Aug. 27, 2019, 3:42 p.m.
Only Death Is Real

The third iteration of Only Death Is Real is perhaps its darkest yet. Oppressive black metal, frozen winds and French melancholy all feature with the common thread being that the music here has all been released independently or by the artists themselves. Dive in but don't forget to come up for air. Corridoré - Corridoré (Self-released) Basing lyrics on already famous literary works is something that modern music has done many times over, and Wisconsion’s Corridoré are the next in line to take their inspiration from a source that is known beforehand. It’s a bold move, in any case, as there is always a danger that the material is not strong enough to carry the words the poet ...
