MetalSucks.net Heartbreak distilled into its most raw form, at once beautiful and ugly, intimate and epic, poetic and neanderthal. Favorite track: Handprints on Glass.

george thorpe Proof that black metal can be so much more than basement-dwelling, reverb laden music for misanthropes. Achingly beautiful; the music conjures up the real emotion of tears within seething anger while still pointing towards something intangibly positive. The symphonic elements forfeit bombast for a more subtle enhancement of the songs.

Alexander Hamilton So much atmosphere, I could not think of anything else to epitomize melancholy, especially when it is raining outside.
Great instrumentation, great production. Favorite track: To Clasp a Fallen Wish with Broken Fingers.

Lurking beneath the surface of metal underground, NYC's own, So Hideous, My Love... has created a devastating musical hybrid of heart racing proportions: Fusing post rock leanings (Envy, Mono, GSYBE!) & adventurous black metal (Wolves in the Throne Room, Celeste, Heaven in Her Arms) with classical beauty (Arvo Part, Beethoven), the band along with contemporaries, San Francisco's Deafheaven & London's Fen have laid claim to the appropriately termed buzz moniker 'post-black metal' with their newest offering, To Clasp a Fallen Wish with Broken Fingers. Born out of home recordings in the winter of 2008 by composer/guitarists Brandon Cruz & Jack Marshall, So Hideous, My Love... self-released their debut EP I Balance a Daydream on an Edge of a Knife in the Spring of 2010 to an outpouring of love from the heavy music community. To Clasp a Fallen Wish... serves as a companion piece to the band's first release and showcases the bands further maturation of engaging daydreams & paralyzing musical nightmares.
