Another release I snagged in that Dark Descent haul recently was this debut LP from Weregoat out of Portland. "Unholy Exaltation of Fullmoon Perversity" released by Parasitic Records on black vinyl presents a pretty on point rendition of this sound that a heap of bands seem to be having a go at the moment; dark death/black metal. Lo-fi recording, deep tremolo picking guitars underpinning a heavily reverbed vocal style, coupled with a heap of blast beating that is occasionally broken up by a cool breakdown styled riff. Not for the faint of heart, this is the kind of album you'd expect a label like Nuclear War Now! or similar to release. This reminds me heaps of a slightly more shitty sounding Bestial Raids so maybe that's where that idea comes from.
