Dorthia Cottrell envisions her music as both a document of love and a reconciliation with death. On her new album, Death Folk Country, Cottrell wards off death through creation – the most distilled form of love. The spirit of love passed on through her words will be the ultimate reward for earthly suffering. Cottrell’s enigmatic presence guides listeners down a path of introspection – Death Folk Country‘s massive scope touches upon tales of love, loss, and so much more. Cottrell was raised in rural King George, Virginia, a town with less than 5,000 inhabitants. Forests and tall-grass fields stretched before […]

Crust punk, black metal and grindcore collide on Gorgonchrist’s delirious debut, Fish In A Mountain

The jester stands amidst the flames, surveying the death throes of the world. His motley garb is scorched and smoking, torn and dishevelled, while his cockscomb hat has long since lost its bells. Kings crawl through the ashes at his feet, crowns slipping from their heads as they weep for their approaching end. Yet the jester sheds no tears for all that has been lost, or all those that are still to die. He neither rails at the futility of existence and the unfairness of fate, nor searches the sky for deeper meanings to it all. He does not revel […]
