Camryn Marquez Black metal is a genre that is supposed to emotionally capitalize on the worst feelings that humans experience; this is it's original intention- though that has changed over time. Our Sun is an album that is a throwback to the atavistic black metal mission statement. Though melodic, it no less buries itself in that which mars the human heart and reminds why black metal was the inevitable outcome of such an invention as the human heart. Favorite track: The Weight of Life.

Limited to 300 units and never to be repressed.

There are dark feelings that just a raw and vicious formula can emphasize, the true black metal has been too long a label abused by project just repeating some external clichés.

Near are part of the Dolomitic Northern-Italian Black Metal scene, an heritage of acts like Tenebrae in Perpetuum, Beatrik, Lorn, deeply connected to the territory, keeping the black flame burning into isolated lands.

“Own Sun” stays, as the immortal feeling, manifesting a ’90 inspired album that will leave a further mark into glorifying dark side of nature, the cold winds blowing into the uncertainty of feeble human life.
