here's a good number of bands putting the Northwest on the radar when it comes to black metal. While all of them are producing quality, genre-complementing music, the real blip to watch is Portland's Burials. The band's seamless newest record, The Tide, possesses elements you'd expect from most black-metal recordings: blast beats, tremolo picking, raspy, snarling vocals, and so on. However, there is one thing missing, and it doesn't affect them negatively in the slightest. Burials have taken the scary, bone-chilling riffs of typical black metal and replaced them with a much more awe-inspiring tone. Think of standing on a vast shoreline looking out into the endless ocean, or gazing up at a towering mountain, instead of creepy graveyards and cobwebbed haunted houses. That's not to say Burials' music lacks intensity, because it definitely doesn't, but they are playing with much more then just the black-metal deck. ARIS WALES
