The Texas-based project Husere Grav ("Huss-urr-ee Grahv") is certainly metal enough to have a page on the rigidly parametered metal archives—Athanor (aka Todd Watson) having been 1/2 of Homunculus, who released three full-lengths over 2005-6—but Husere Grav combines black-metal prescience and mystery (à la Paysage d'Hiver) with MB-like crumble and haunted tunneling.
All the Husere Grav releases, including vinyl splits, self-released CDrs, and tapes, are gloriously dark trip-out music (the untitled cassette on Stunned comes highly recommended), and Todd's live visit to the Castle comes highly anticipated. Athanor renders a unique performance for WFMU and My Castle of Quiet radio, and you can also catch Husere Grav live the following night, at Port d'Or in Brooklyn, with Castle favorites Hex Breaker Quintet and Isa Christ.
"Goddamit, let me in! We're being eaten alive out here!" @ midnight.
