Obolus: Another Freebie from The Flenser

The Flenser is giving away another album, but this one is for a limited time only. I haven't listened yet, but considering the label's history it's a good bet it'll be worth your time. The press release stated, "The 2011 Obolus demo . . . demonstrates a supreme balance of harsh 90’s black metal and somber California depressive gaze." Now, Lament "is the mysterious black metal band's second release and expands upon the gazed-out harshness of their debut demo." Is that good, bad, whatever? I don't know. But it won't be free anymore once the record goes up for sale (which is said to be soon). So I thought I'd take a risk and point you in the right direction without evaluating it myself first.
