About once per year, Iron Bonehead releases an album that stuns me and ends up on my annual top 20 list. I suspect that Emanatism will be 2020’s entry on this list, because this is phenomenal, dissonant black metal that constantly writhes, and trying to specifically classify this is the musical equivalent nailing jello to the wall - it is unlikely to happen. This is its own monstrosity, but projects like Skáphe, Gudveiki, and of course Deathspell Omega are reasonable comparators. Enjoy!
Favorite track: Abstinence.
