Black Table - Sentinel



Simply put Black Table's Sentinel is post-black metal. For a more in-depth description I would go with black metal mixed with the grime of sludge, the angular riffs of hardcore, and the melodies of post-rock. A smorgasbord of heaviness. Black Table are talented musicians, and their sound is intricate. But Sentinel is not filled with progressive noodling; there are brilliant riffs aplenty and the songs, especially opener Heist, are quite catchy.



Court from the Nashvile blog recorded Black Table's show at The Hymen in Dec 2012. Check them rip through To Tear Down and the EP title track. Due to technical issues you can't really hear the vocals. But you can enjoy the bands musical chops, including some awesome 6-stringed bass shredding (part 1 is here). I file Black Table under "Very, very promising".

  1. Black Table rules! Just to clarify though, it was actually Hymen House aficionado Jesse Mowery of Dawn/Altar of Complaints/et al that recorded the video, all I did was write it up. Thanks for the props though!
