Here, to tide you over through Terminus Winter Break, is a bonus episode from just over a year ago, with a moody midwinter vibe and an emphasis on subgenre history. We've paired two bands that were basically canonical in the 00s, the first as a key influence on DSBM, the second as an important DSBM band. Revisiting these, though, there's a lot more going on. Forgotten Woods draw most of their riff-forms *directly* from goth and punk, to such an extent that, while this is obviously true Black Metal, it's not really Metal at all. Nyktalgia, likewise, is difficult to pigeonhole, proving that the Germans can't even kill themselves without being militant about it. Nobody really sounds like either of these bands, but why not? There's plenty to learn.
