Xasthur - Portal of Sorrow (2010)

this is some bedroom black metal shit, unmastered and lo-fi as a motherfucker. that being said, it's actually pretty impressive that dude could put this together on his own with incredibly limited resources - there's a wide variety of sounds and textures associated with the genre, like damaged guitars, choirs, and organs, but with some softsynths, doom folk touches, and that decidedly homemade aesthetic.

for the love of god, trim the bass on your EQ
