Richter Everything that is currently good about heavy music, all in one place. Need more.

Malte Svarta Builds and builds and builds gazing at the floor until exploding in a train of screaming black metal until hitting a wall of harsh sludge until releasing into a soothing interlude which surprisingly does not break but builds and builds again until ... it just goes weaving one magnificent thing into the other. Anticipating what this band will become! But where's the lyrics??

DM Cathartic and hypnotic... Easily one of the best records of last year.

Alexander Tulett More like "100 Years of Solid 'Tude". I give it 10 bloodhounds outta 10.

We are proud to release 100 Years of Solitude's hugely impressive debut EP 'A Blackened Earth', a seething slab of blackened post-metal, forged by veterans of the Sydney music scene.

'A Blackened Earth' oscillates between haunting, ethereal passages and bursts of pure extremity. This is earthen, forward-thinking metal for fans of Deafheaven, Isis, Wolves in the Throne Room and Encircling Sea.
