Dissident Aggression: Sulphur – Omens of Doom

Posted by on May 13, 2016

Posted by on March 11, 2016

While the one-man black metal jam, usually playing the lowest of the lo-fi, became a somewhat popular trend in the 90s, the concept of putting together an album all by your lonesome remained a very large anomaly in other extreme genres.
