Xasthur, "Split w/Nortt"

Xasthur have a tough job on their A Curse for the Lifeless split, since they’re following Nortt’s scarily slow and destructive doom/black metal. The three tracks they contribute on this album are all instrumental, and after the first four tracks on the split, all of these sound a little too polished, fast and upbeat. Though Xasthur’s music is actually kind of eerie and heavy in the well-done, old-school, keyboard-driven black metal sort of way, it’s just not enough to overcome the thick gloom cast by Nortt.
