NEGATIVE STANDARDS: Fetters: LP

Negative Standards provide the background music to your deepest, darkest thoughts of mortality, meaning, and neurosis. Excruciatingly beautiful and nihilistic lyrics growl, drag, and beat you to submission. Dark and brutally churning breakdowns, relentless d-beat insanity, and sample-heavy tracks make up this sludgy black metal. Superb. –Camylle Reynolds (Vendetta, bisaufsmesser.com)
