Necrolytic Goat Converter is probably one of the most interesting band names I’ve stumbled upon in recent years but do not let a name deter you. Isolated Evolution is a treasure trove combining all things Black Metal into a cauldron of memorable tunes and goats… just kidding about the goat part but if converting them is a form of creating solid musical composition then mastermind Chris Voss has achieved just this.
After much procrastination and a journey through the dismal Atmosphere of Icelandic Metal, I bring forth the talent that is Southern California’s Black Metal act Coldvoid. A few weeks back I had the pleasure of seeing the band live at a small bar here in Socal, and I was sold even more so than before. The set itself was atmospheric, dark, and depressive the low lights adding to the overall ambience. Complete with corpse paint, and typical black metal garb Coldvoid managed to invoke an overall unison with the audience, sweeping through mid paced Black Metal to slow haunting passages. I was thourghly impressed and I definitely hope they bring more shows to the table.
