Primitive Graven Image ‎– Traversing The Awesome Night (2007)

Cold, harrowing black metal from the UK. This one has been on the to-do list for a while (I wonder how many times I’ve written than exact sentence out?), but I’m glad I finally got around to it because its everything that the cover art promised and much more. The production is a little hollow, leaning heavily into treble territory with buzzsaw guitars and percussion that is drenched in reverb, but the songwriting is superb. I’m unsure which of the two members is doing the vocals on this but they are perfect and mixed into the cauldron of foggy chaos just perfectly.
