y e s b o i Amazing DSBM from Australia, I bought their album when I listened to the first track because they amazed me, Deadspace put a special atmosphere with this retro sound (Thinking of the solo of the last track) and the shrieking voice. In more there is this Lifelover-ish feeling, with auto destruction. Total worship, waiting for the next production. Favorite track: In The Coldness Of The Darkest Night.

flightoficarus (Metal Trenches) From the first tortured post-black screams and perfectly implemented keys of the title track to the final blissful notes of "In the Coldness," I was captivated. The added, but never overdone reverb make this sound like an album playing within the mind of someone coping with MDD. It's a sad reminder, but also a victory call.

El_Cuervo Imagine Shining (Swe) but factor in more atmospherics.

Deadspace aims for cathartic misanthropy but hits a strange but compelling spot wherein its depressive black metal is quite calming. There's a chilling tranquility present here, despite its obvious blackened tendencies. In my top 10 for 2015. Favorite track: Oblivion.

Track Name: The Promise Of Oblivion
the coming void is always screaming
begging me with hands of outstretched agony
the promise of oblivion
day by day fucking me to sleep
i welcome it with tired eyes

the black noise is paler than the white
is safer than the light that burns
the light that taunts us
from a cold distant life
that i'll never ever have

the mirror breaks my skin
a crimson flower is blossoming like a bloated corpse

the promise of oblivion
day by day fucking me to sleep
i welcome it with tired eyes
Track Name: With Tears Of Callous Lust
my virtue is running dry
my filth is bleeding through my own desires
with ash in my mouth i am the stained

the silence hurts us
desire will burn us

now comes the birth of something pure
an innocence to spoil
to spill upon with tears of callous lust

the child in me is angry
her hurt will find her forever
it's inevitable

there's nothing left to feed on
except for love

the silence hurts us
desire will burn us

now comes the birth of something pure
an innocence to spoil
to spill upon with tears of callous lust
Track Name: I'll Buy The Rope
reaching upward
until the skin tears off these arms
a distant light of mine
is all that's left
and i'd bury my nails in your eyes

feel my sorrow run between my fingers
to take away the longing

on sheets of embers in the writhing blackness
sweat soaking through the fucking silk again

i wander, longing and lying still
a mind raped to bleeding by words

there is no respite
the gaping maw above this hole
once all the sky to me
is little more than a distant star

my fingers grazed and nails split
from the endless climbing
my back is broken from the fall

stone's throw from the blame
an ocean away
too far to swim, but not to drown

on sheets of embers in the writhing blackness
sweat soaking through the fucking silk again

i wander longing and lying still
a mind raped to bleeding by words
Track Name: The Clouds Won't Shade The Pain
the darkness conceals all that was before
the dirt that coats the teeth
oil for the machine
bones ground to dust
the agonising groan of a dying man
becomes the new hymn for fruitless prayer
the red in the sky is wrung dry
like the flicker in your eyes

und ich bin qual
life leaves us all

the end is always inevitable
and tastes like sweet defeat
a misery born from the ruins of yesterday's failures
lays beneath our feet

it's all i am
all i'll ever be
flesh, blood and bone
the poison that i breathe
nothing more, nothing at all
where do we go from here?
six feet under the earth we reap
Track Name: Schadenfreude
left to rot inside this hole

let me out of here
break me free of my own skin
blind me from all my sin
no more shackles
lead me home

mein schadenfreude, cut their throats
bleed them dry and cold

it's like we're lusting blood
so let it rain
the paper clouds don't mask the pain
bleed, bleed, feed

i want to see their brains on the floor
Track Name: Pain's Grey
they tried to bury us
they didn't know we were seeds
destined to grow in ruins
of feeble aspirations

thriving in the darkness
feeding in the depths

die finsternis des menschen
was mich nicht umbringt macht mich schwärzer

we cut our teeth
earning our lacerations
fighting for the wavering contract
of a certain tomorrow

there is no time for sleeping
there is no hope in dreaming

we're lesser hues now
all turned to grey
the colours we turned away
haunt us with their absence
Track Name: In The Coldness Of The Darkest Night
inside i'm spilling over
it fills my eyes with the filth that you spit
the never-ceasing voices
black sweat is slick upon my face

the judgement is sickening
it never ends
it baits me to rage, the childish games you play

du bist innerlich schwarz
black, svart, empty
du bist innerlich tot
rotting, putrid, fetid

as sick as i am
you colour me with light
as sick as i am
you make me feel like fire

in the coldness of the darkest night
i lay under the stars and dream of death's embrace

it pulls me under the current
my lungs quickly filling with water

like that it all fades away
fades to grey
