Toil - Obscure Chasms

Genre(s) - Black metal
Origin - United States of America
Year of release - 2007
Bitrate - 96 kbps
Size - 28.52 MB

Toil are an American underground raw black metal project and this is the first and only full-length. Main dude seems quite active in the scene, with many (guest) positions in different bands and projects, among which Vrolok, Funeral Mourning and Nox Inferi. Obscure Chasms is marred by a thin sound
and low volume, for which the bitrate isn't solely to blame, but this in turn generates a mystic, hazy sound that suits the band's style well. I'm posting this album for the sake of Mistress of the Deep (Part 1) which really hits home with its intricate, obscenely depressing guitar lines. This exercise is repeated in a much more monotonous way and to less effect on Desolate Reflection. The rest really can't flop my mop but I'm sure plenty of you will have a use for this lo-fi, murky and moody black metal album.
