As an avid pupil of the occult in years past, there are few bands which can really set those occult fires burning again. Schammasch is a band that never disappoints or grows stagnant. Hermaphrodite is a beautiful example of mastery of one's craft and a testament to the fact that you don't need constant blastbeats and shredding guitars to bring something with real weight. It would be a privilege to do some art for these guys one day (seriously, guys, hit me up!).
Favorite track: May His Illusion Last Until Dawn's Awakening.
