CD Reviews

Unrepentantly unusual

"mr. bissels review is spot on. it's so very strange that the reemergence of Carl-Michael Eide, (contributer to avante-metal bellweathers such as Dodheimsgard, Arcturus and Aura Noir,) has gone relatively undocumented. His lugubrious drawl, (think Nick Cave on sleeping pills,) and oblique compositional tendencies are matchless and i've missed them dearly. you may catch a whiff of shellac, swans, deathspell omega or bauhause but believe me, you are on alien territory. Virus' only notable touchstone is Mr. Eides previous outfit Ved Buens Ende and if you haven't heard the album "written in waters," (which god knows, you probably haven't,) this is again a useless, circular comparison. do yourself a favor, stretch your legs and explore a little bit. we have been blessed by the return of a true luminary and "the black flux," itself is a somber sort of celebration."
One of the Highlights of 2008

"This album amazes me each and every time I listen to it, but what amazes me even more, is that there are no other reviews for it here! This is a work that should be praised near and far by anyone who appreciates original, avant garde music. From the inspired guitar work, to the eerie, occult-styled vocals, every sound here is crafted to unsettle and paint for the listener landscapes strange and unknown. Of the many excellent albums which have surfaced over the past year (from Earth's The Bees Made Honey in the Lion's Skull, to Meshuggah's obZen), this release is quite possibly my favorite. Few other albums evoke so powerfully, and completely the paranormal, otherworldly atmosphere which The Black Flux does. I highly recommend this work of art to anyone who appreciates new, original, and strange sounds. Don't hesitate, do your ears a favor and buy it now!"
