Anomalie: Refugium

Album Review

Doleful deliberations from Europe’s centre ground

DSBM (or depressive black metal for formality) is a funny old thing.

It can be truly stunning – Xasthur, Lifelover, Totalselfhatred (their first album) – or it can be somewhat cringeworthy – Totalselfhatred (their second album) – and then there’s the DSBM that sits in the middle, not really pushing any boundaries but certainly doing something of interest. For Anomalie, hailing from Austria, the middle ground is where we find them on Refugium.
