porcelainheart- I had no clue Native American-influenced black metal was a thing, but I'm not surprised it exists. The furious energy of black metal channels the spirituality of Native American history and culture brilliantly. FFO Pan-Amerikan Native Front and Alda. Favorite track: The Serpent Tradition.

𝔅𝔩𝔦𝔰𝔰 ॐ 𝔄𝔟𝔶𝔰𝔰 This is an album that captivated me from the outset. I don't believe you can make it through the first guitar solo without your spirit being moved to march into battle and even die defending your tribe. Favorite track: The Serpent Tradition.

spixband Just found Nechochwen and don’t know how I missed these guys, but sure am glad I found them. In these times it’s good to find things that inspire you and Nechochwen truly inspire with this album and others I’ve heard so far. Thanks Aaron and co. for doing what you do. Skyhook and Heart of Akamon are my favorites (so far) love all the diverse instrumentation. Favorite track: Skyhook.
