- I am looking for a secondary reviewer to aid in creating content for Contaminated Tones Blog. While I have become increasingly focused in working on Contaminated Tones releases, with several more to come in the next several months including a handful of possible Pro-CD releases, it is becoming increasingly difficult for myself alone to review and publish all the reviews I intend. Here is what I am looking for in a reviewer / contributor / required skills:
- MUST ABSOLUTELY BE ADDICTED TO HEAVY METAL
- Strong writing ability.
- Ability to go out and find material to review.
- Must own a scanner to scan artwork for the website.
- Must be professional.
- CTP-005-I Is now out! Gates of Eternal Torment is the heart of a North American nomadic lone-wolf who for the past several years, after being shit on and mistreated finally is able to say his labor of love for more than two years can see light. Primitive, Raw and honest, IMPRISONED BENEATH THE ICE OF THIS COLD BLACK VOID mimics the emotions of loneliness in the vast stretches of wilderness travelled by this lone creature.

___________________________________________________________________________[size=200]CTP 006 I: Gates of Eternal Torment - Imprisoned Beneath The Ice Of This Cold Black Void
For several years, this release has been a labor of love for the wandering man behind the project. Recorded in multiple places, pieced together like a puzzle while traveling by freight train across North America and tossed back and forth between being released and having promises broken, the honesty and emotion on this release is such that soulful is an understatement. Few releases have a story that spans as much time and space as this. A unique and pure exercise in raw and emotionally distilled black metal.REVIEWS[size=200]CTP 005 - I: Black Chalice - Submission[/size]
Doom-laden death metal with heavy atmosphere and mournful melodies. This third release is the peak of Black Chalice's continuing progression into an ever more unique style which will surely be adored by anyone into the off-shades of both Doom metal and Death Metal. Inevitably, due to it's creator's involvement in other projects such as Auspicium, elements of black metal make themselves shown momentarily but this is primarily the affair of other styles.

The second album from this reclusive act is sure to appeal to anyone with even a cursory interest in black metal. Thick, suffocating, and concealing uneasiness, "Stones" rewards the listener with feelings of uncertainty, awkwardness and fear. Preoccupied only by it's own mission and it's own patience, there is a vastness and scope few bands attempt and succeed in meeting. Somewhere between everything, there is a comfort that one can only find upon the realization that we are all, ultimately, consumed. $4.50

The subliminal undertones spread across this miasma of noise and blackened funeral drudge is enough to send even the most stable mind into convulsions. A heavy load of fuzz and static drenched guitars creep across the outer layers but underneath the harshness lays a foreboding post-apocalyptic nihilist's utopia of lingering burnt out bomb shelters and blasted out monuments to mankind's folly. The fog of war blows gently across a vast landscape, leaving the listener to stare into the distance for half an hour, soak in the radiation, and melt away.$4.00
