rvss.eel This album is a journey through dark, melodious caverns, with flickers of light only enough to guide your way through. But not out, never out of the darkness. Truly brilliant.

This is my #3 album of 2016. Favorite track: The Irrepassable Gate.

Matthew Toye Ash Borer are the masters of atmospheric black metal. Their third album submerges us in their most haunting and intense work to date. Favorite track: Lacerated Spirit.

Kush Arora Probably one of my favorite records of the last few years. As a fan of Vanum recently and their other material, this keeps the expanding universe of Ash Borer, the wild sliding guitars are absolutely killer, and walls and walls of sonic power going. Love the vocal treatment and placement in these tracks too, will be a huge record for those who love instrumental metal as well if they can get past a few vox here and there. Don't sleep on all!!!! Favorite track: The Irrepassable Gate.

Third full-length LP from ASH BORER presents itself as the band’s most transcendent and powerful offering yet. Time-stretching enveloping vicious ambient otherworldly black metal this time produced by Randall Dunn, “The Irrepassable Gate” sees ASH BORER take their blueprint of virulent black metal artistry to a whole new plateau of invincibility.
