Ahem, sorry bout that, just got a little carried away! After receiving some kind words from Alex Wyld from Morgawr about my post on his band, I've been re-invigorated to do more posts! Yay for kind words from a random stranger!
So to recap: I go onto the Metal-Archives website, push the 'random band' button and write about whichever current /active band appears. And as I've finally discovered Bandcamp , I'll be publishing the band's bandcamp page info (if they have one).
So first up in this brave, new, exciting world is Mare Cognitum
A one man black metal band from Santa Ana, California whose sole member is Jacob Buczarski (who plays all instruments) has released 2 albums so far: 2011's ' The Sea Which Has Become Known' and 2012's 'An Extraconscious Lucidity' both are available on his bandcamp page:
The songs are atmospheric, progressive black metal with plenty of variety (and great production) to elevate Mare Cognitum from the usual idea of what one-man-black-metal is.
For fans of Krallice, Wolves In The Throne Room, Enslaved.
