Fresh Meat: Introducing your new favourite metal bands

Shibalba, Kabbalah and Loviatar are the best new bands from metal's underground this month

Shibalba

Psychonauts enter the realm of the ancients

Black metal is a medium through which the bold strive to transcend the limitations of the flesh. Like a creature emerging from a charred chrysalis, the triumvirate of BM veterans that comprise and compose the darkly ambient environs of Shibalba – Acherontas V.Priest of Greek atavists Acherontas, fellow countryman Aldra-Al-Melekh, and Karl NE of defunct Swedish occultists Nåstrond – have stepped beyond extremity to channel the trance-inducing state of their latest release, Psychostasis – Death Of Khat, as they attempt communion with realms beyond death.
