[Music] Various Artists – Al​-​Mawtin Al​-​Aswad: Arabian Inheritance

Respect to Depressive Illusions Records out of Kyiv, Ukraine, for giving these folks a platform to spread their music out to the broader world, even if metal isn’t quite my cup of tea. This compilation of Arabian and North African racket bears little resemblance to anything metal-heads in the United States are used to producing. The anger …
