Rapper GHOSTEMANE Releases Lo-Fi Black Metal Album
According to Metal Injection, Rapper Eric Whitney AKA Ghostemane has dropped a black metal album under the name BLACKMAGE. Apparently it's not his first foray into metal having done a split release with a band we have never heard of called Ho99o9.
Intrigued, we gave the EP (called Baader-Meinhof) a listen over at Soundcloud and have to admit it's pretty decent. It starts off with some acoustic strumming that summons some early Emperor for inspiration.
Ghostmane seems to have the proper influences: according to Wikipedia he grew up in Florida and started out his music career by playing in local hardcore punk and doom metal bands. Check out BLACKMAGE on Soundcloud by clicking here.
