Hi, what are you looking for?

Black Metal

Hear this new Blackened Doom classic from BASALT “Circumspice”

What if doom and black metal met in a big city in Brazil and made a demon baby? It would grow up and make music that sounds like the guttural howls and unrelenting riffs of BASALT! This São Paulo band will rip your throat open and watch you bleed out as they mercilessly play on, and everyone else will be too busy head banging to notice your life ebbing from your frail body. Their new album, Silêncio Como Respiração, comes out on Ritual Productions on May 8th. Today we’re stoked to be sharing their video for the single “Circumspice,” and I have a feeling you’re going to want to watch this more than once because this song is fucking murderous. So hit play below and let Basalt crush you:
