BlackBraid releases debut album to stellar reviews, listen here

BlackBraid is a Native American Black Metal solo project hailing from the Adirondack Mountains.

The highly anticipated debut album from BlackBraid, the Native American black metal artist, has arrived, and it has premiered with rave reviews from Bandcamp critics across the board.

Take a listen and see what people are saying below.

"Wow. A perfect debut. Unbelievably powerful and well crafted, and the lyrics are moving and capture the raw essence of nature. The last verse of lyrics on the final track are the most powerful ending I've heard to close an album out in a long time. I can't even tell how many times I've listened already. AOTY for sure." - coryjk

"Tripped upon this mesmeric find, whether by fate or serendipity, and I am utterly blown away. Everyone seems to be raving about Sgah'gahsowáh, and deservedly so. Indigenous black metal has been centuries in the making, and finally the time has come." - Diogenes Grief

"Indigenous black metal, and not only is it an incredibly impressive theme and musical direction but it is also a solo project as well. Being of mohawk descent, with little exposure to my roots as a child has spurned me forward to find some connection and meaning of a culture lost to me." - Abyssius Murkraken

For more reviews, and to purchase it for yourself, head over to the project's Bandcamp page.

Six songs, two of which are acoustic filler. Since when did something like this start being considered an album? Four songs?

As one guy on the comment section wrote, way too much hype for someone heavily influenced by Mgla.

Damn, if we're going by Bandcamp critics then I am a successful musician. Sadly, I live in the real world.
