Album: EP2: Hammer of Botany
Record Label: Self-released
Release Date: 8th April 2015
Futuristic one-man BM project continues his environment-themed, glacial vision on wholesome new EP
Following the natural formula of a Hammer Dulcimer and drum kit over any traditionalist fodder such as a guitar, over the past decade mysterious one-man eco-warrior project Botanist has stood up as a musician truly putting the artistry into modern black metal. His new 5-track release 'EP2: Hammer of Botany' is as good a place to start as any. It runs through his trademark glacial soundscapes and thunderous 10-armed drumming vigorously, and the feral, dark epic of 'Flame of the Forest' is balanced out by the mid-paced pretty-ness and angelic backing vocals of 'Stachys Olympica', showcasing the width of his vision.
Key Tracks: 'Flame of the Forest', 'Stachys Olympica'
