I was pleased to see Argo win best picture. It was definitely deserving of it, and I applaud Ben Affleck for his skill as a director and storyteller.

This movie kept me on edge and glued the entire time. While it has slower parts, they’re all with purpose. In truth, I never knew this story. It happened the year I was born, but it’s also one that never came to light until the details were publicly released by President Bill Clinton — and at that time, I was a college student not paying close attention to the news.

Argo is a gripping political thriller, with excellent…

Atmospheric Black Metal
Released via Cursed Records

The Eerie Constellation is the third album from the Austrian atmospheric black metal band Valfeanor. It is the follow up to their 2009 album ‘Noreia’. The band was formed back in 2002 under the name Mortar which was then changed to Valfeanor in 2005.

After the soothing keyboard intro Interlude we get to the first real track on here; Lethe Jenseits which offers a delicate balance of harsh black metal vocals, melodic guitar riffs and steady drumming intertwined with the aforementioned atmospheric keyboards. It’s non-identical twin Lethe Diesseits is the longer, more complex of the two and sees emphasis shift towards the guitars and the vocals take a turn towards the old Mayhem-style howling.
