The assorted writings, ramblings, ravings and misc of multi-award-winning writer Mat Blackwell. Old stuff, new stuff, linked stuff, and stuff that I really should've thought harder about before posting. Welcome to my internets!
REVIEW: Ak’Chamel, The Giver of Illness – My Form Has Been Extinguished
The most difficult review I have ever written. Because I love this band so so much, and I liked their VHS cassette so very very little. Written for
Heathen Harvest, and barely edited by
"In my heart of hearts, I honestly believe that this is just a collection
of cool footage that was combined to look mysterious, without any real
greater agenda than that: to seem cool and weird, and maybe trip someone
out a little, as something for the eyes to do while the ears digest the
music—music which, I insist, is still incredible."
