classymusicsnob I was just expecting a folky ambient album, however this blew me away. it mixed electronic, ambient, folk, a touch of punk, a touch of metal and even a hint of power electronics.

I would describe it as a modern romanticist take on medieval military music with a cyberpunk attitude. its not quite your average neo folk/martial industrial hybrid Favorite track: The Fortress of An Ironclad Opressor Has Been Breached.

Released by True Cult Records

(for digital download, go to truecultrecords.bandcamp.com/album/under-a-banner-black-as-blood)

"Ayloss (Spectral Lore, Mystras, A Compendium of Curiosities) and frequent collaborator Spider of Pnyx introduce a new entity called Under A Banner Black As Blood by blending their styles, based on grand orchestral samples and lo-fi analogue synths and real percussion respectively, in a militant symphony of peasant sieges upon noble strongholds and forgotten skirmishes, as an allegory to modern struggles people face nowadays. Equal parts ambient darkness and medieval aggression, there is a wide breadth of influences that merge into the resulting sound, starting from a foundation of dark dungeon synth and militant ambient to branch out even to 70's electro-ambient or kraut. Under A Banner Black As Blood aim to show that the escapism inherent in such genres can be subverted to serve a purpose".
