WILD HUNT
BEFORE THE PLANE OF ANGLES
KEMADO

Using black metal as a springboard into musical discovery, Wild Hunt dabbles in progressive rock with avant-garde elements on the San Francisco quartet’s sprawling five-track release BEFORE THE PLANE OF ANGLES. Throwing a hearty helping of atmospheric sludge metal in for good measure, this act unleashes a furious flurry of harsh vocals and glacial guitars before making game changing left turns into epic realms relegated for the more adventurous of the metal band set. Intertwining the cerebral characteristics of Enslaved, Mastodon, Opeth, and Cult of Luna (“Plane of Angles”) to craft elegantly executed black metal malaise delivered with the harshness and despair of a corpsepainted crew (“Window to the Nether”), Wild Hunt soars into the galaxy with ambitious ambience despite a generous barrage of nefarious nuances from the most bleak and doom-laden from the underground at the forefront of their attack. -Mike SOS
