Today in our studies of entropy, we look at how humans in groups motivated by self-interest will tear down anything good. As a case for study, Wormwood Nattarvet shows us how cruft and the desire to be unique leads to a reversion to the mean, in this case the 70s rock from which black metal distantly emerged.

Style gives voice to content, which means that the wrong style can distort content and present it incoherently, which is a problem since disorganization creates all the bad music in the world.

Trendy albums age poorly, but those written for eternity tend to maintain their stature even as people gain more experience and cynicism over the years. Finis Malorum stands up to time with a new edition that includes the “Sedes Impiorum” demo, two covers, and an early track.
