Nic Brown 21st century black metal ranges from the fundamentalist lo-fi thrashing of corpse-painted Darkthrone and Mayhem clones through the introspective so-called 'blackgaze' of Deafheaven and Bosse-De-Nage to ultra-weird outliers like Mamaleek. A Pregnant Light, the solo project of Damian Master, is yet another variant where, amongst the de rigueur vocal shrieks, delicate passages of melodic acoustic guitar break up the frantic tremolo riffing and tempo changes abound over the course "Rocky"'s 21 minute duration. The man himself calls it "purple metal" but whatever it is, it's a hugely addictive listen. Favorite track: Rocky.

Rocky 21:00
Sons: remember your fathers Deathmyhangingdoorway The day before I watched you sleep You were slipping You were letting your pain go The body didn’t match the heart Your pain was seeing us Because we loved you so much I understood why people say “I would have traded places with you” I would have instantly You didn’t deserve to have breath be short Your lungs were weak from birth The body didn’t match your heart Your heart was too big for your body Even though it had withered away Deprived of oxygen A smile never left your face You were never bitter or angry Never sour or upset You loved us unconditionally Trust God Love God Know that there is a plan I saw no plan other than the taking of a good man Every time I saw you I was angry And every single time you’d look right at me I wanted to curse the creation that made you suffer You told me to be at peace Strangely I could Because of your strength March 8th Mid-morning My mom, my sister and I I never watched someone I love die before Mallory stood up and got sick My mother was beside herself in relief and disbelief Finally you could rest I remember looking at my mother to try and see her face I can’t remember her face I can’t remember how she looked She had been taking care of my dad every moment of every day After we went home After we cleaned up and did the dishes After the football game when the pain of what life had become Draped like stars over their shared sky Love is not a burden Love is a sun I see the purple light Dad, if somehow you can hear me I’m sorry that this song isn’t all it should be I love you so much Thank you for being the greatest man I’ve ever known I miss you more than I can comprehend Sometimes I feel like you’re going to call me Like somehow it wasn’t real Even though I took care of your body When it grew cold in that warm bright room I knew you were gone Still I had to touch your face and pull back your hair When I kissed your forehead and held your neck I felt your love even then Goodbye, Dad I’ll see you in the next life I’ll always be your son
