Chuck Schuldiner Project

You guys know I've long been enamored with black metal bands who honor their heritage. So that's part of why I'm so excited to bring you Siaskel, a band whose record name, Jatenentolpen Thejin is in the language of the ancient (and now extinct) Ona people. Their brand of searing atavistic black metal rips out throats and leaves me at a pure loss for words, so filled with hatred, but also a sort of ancient wisdom. Siaskel get it. These Chileans honor their forefathers, but they also bring forth something dark and angry, torn from a pit that was long forgotten. The blazing riffs and inhuman vocal lines on their new record are incredibly satisfying. They leave a hoary old metaller like me in awe of a band who don't feel the need to follow your rules. Siaskel are coming to reap your soul and make you a slave to a people who were decimated. Find your own path and embrace, it seems like Siaskel certainly have.
