Black Metal

Purify your soul with THE FIFTH ALLIANCE “Black”

Fleur Coevoet

Life has been teaching me hard lessons over the past couple of years, and my one solace in times of persistent anxiety and exhausting agony has been music. Not just any music, but sounds that touch the pain I’m feeling and pull it from me, wrenching it from its grip on my guts like an otherworldly parasite, and bludgeoning it with righteous fury. It also needs to tenderly coax my hope and happiness from the dark corners of my soul. The new album from The Fifth Alliance, The Depth Of The Darkness, has the healing sounds I need. I have their track “Black” on repeat and it is purging and purifying my soul with a blackened blend of black metal, doom, post rock and sludge. The blast beats clear out my negativity and the resonant tones of the breakdowns bring me back to my centre. I can only imagine the out of body experience I would have hearing The Fifth Alliance live! The Depth Of The Darkness is out August 30, 2019 on Burning World Records / Init Records / Consouling Sounds / Bharal Tapes. Stay tuned to the labels for pre-orders, and right now let “Black” cleanse your soul below…
