Axeman - Arrive (2010)


"Black Twilight entity, from the infamous black twilight circle"

For those of you who don't know what the Black Twilight Circle is, here's a description:

"Black Twilight is the union of the best and most dedicated Black Metal bands in Southern California. The Worship Black Twilight compilation acts as the group's official sonic mission statement. The bands include Ashdautas, Volahn, Arizmenda, Kallathon and Axeman. It would be hard to name a favorite here (perhaps Kallathon,) this is truly excellent from beginning to end and has me dying to hear more from The Black Twilight hordes."

Axeman make up part of this collection, playing their raw black metal. What I love most about Axeman is their notable influence by Amebix. The band is named after Amebix's first track on Arise! AND their album is poking a finger at the Arise! too... Arise, Arrive. Get it? FUCK YEAH! Their sound is very primitive and raw sounding with a bit of some Amebix-esque vocals thrown in. It's almost as if they were directly related to the band in same way. There are a lot of bands similar to Axeman coming from Southern California and I can't wait to get my hands on some more!
