Alaric / Atriarch split
this is a split between bands from the american west coast (Oakland / Portland) playing a slow and dark music. both have released good full lenght records last year (self titled for Alaric, Forever the End for Atriarch). And this slit is also really good. 3 songs for Alaric, 2 for Atriarch, around 25 min of music.
Alaric's music is a kind of dark and melancolic slow tempo post punk (think Joy division, The swans, the best and darkest moments of early The Cure, stuff like that).
Atriarch's music is dark melodic doom with death/black metal elements.
All the five songs on the split are really good.
