Stielas Storhett's Skd may be short in length, but it packs a lot in those 15 minutes. This is slow-paced, atmospheric, dark and depressing Black Metal that makes you feel likes it's dragging you down to hell along with it. The vocals sound like raw, raspy/screechy laments and convey an inescapable feeling of hopelessness – that's some sick, tormented stuff right there and it doesn't let go. As if that wasn't enough, the music reinforces these dark emotions. Slow-paced melancholic passages are king here and create a very depressing atmosphere that just pin you to the ground with no chance of escape. Things do get heavier and faster at times, but still as crushingly fucked up as the slower stuff. This MCD really feels much longer than 15 minutes (in a good way – that is if you can call inducing depression a good thing ;)) If you think you've been feeling too happy lately, a few repeated listens of Skd are guaranteed to make you run to the doctor for a prescription of anti-depressant medication.
