I hate when I miss updating my blog, but this past weekend was quite hectic. I am going to make up for missing a few days by picking an album today that is so punishingly awesome I don't think words can do it justice. I'm speaking of Cobalt's 2nd full length album entitled, 'Eater of Birds'. Released in 2007, the album contains some of the most intense hardcore/black metal music this blogger has had the pleasure of hearing. Whats even more remarkable is the bands successful transition to playing acoustic rock which occurs a few times throughout the album. I tried to turn a couple friends of mine onto this band who are very into stoner/sludge/doom metal but it wasn't their cup of tea. All I can say is, I don't typically get into black metal/hardcore but these guys got me hooked!
Fav. Tracks: 'Ulcerism', 'Eater of Birds'
