flightoficarus (Metal Trenches) If you like depressive black metal, this will certainly put you in a dark mood.  The guitars achieve a sorrowful wall of sound, and the underproduction of the drums makes for a nice effect.  The vocals are fittingly mournful even in their 2nd wave harshness.  The softer additions also provide some much needed dynamics.
- Favorite track: Ensamheten.

Track Name: Solen
Ta mig till skogen
Låt mig vara bland träden
Låt inte solen strila genom
Låt inget ljus komma fram

Låt inte solen ta mig
Låt inget ljus komma fram

Mina vener växer ihop med grenarna
Mina lungor täcks av mossa
Ur min bröstkorg växer ogräs
Benen blir till rötter
Låt mig slippa solen
Track Name: Ensamheten
Alone, by Edgar Allan Poe (1829).

"From childhood’s hour I have not been
As others were - I have not seen
As others saw - I could not bring
My passions from a common spring
From the same source I have not taken
My sorrow - I could not awaken
My heart to joy at the same tone

And all I loved - I loved alone

Then—in my childhood—in the dawn
Of a most stormy life—was drawn
From ev’ry depth of good and ill
The mystery which binds me still—
From the torrent, or the fountain—
From the red cliff of the mountain—
From the sun that ’round me roll’d
In its autumn tint of gold—
From the lightning in the sky
As it pass’d me flying by—
From the thunder, and the storm—
And the cloud that took the form
(When the rest of Heaven was blue)
Of a demon in my view—"
Track Name: Flykten
This is my goodbye

Let me slip away
Into total isolation
Let me never feel warmth again
Let me never feel the sun
burn me with its rays
Let me never feel the blight
of your embrace
