Oslo’s Black Hole Crew (Okkultokrati, Haust, Dark Times, Drugged SS) got in touch through a shadowy intermediary to hip us to a new video from Blackest Woods, celebrating the true spirit of the rural district the band grew up in, evoking ’90s Norwegian black metal and rubber-burning, the almighty flora and fauna of Telemark. As their emissary told us: “This is not Black Metal. This is the wrath of the woods.Turn off your car engine. Throw away that industrialised meat with cheese. Follow this noise. Feel its spirit.”
