Subject: 4: Selbst - Relatos De Angustia From: .jh Date: 2020-12-17T22:35:00Z Tags: music blog best\ of best\ of\ 2020 Selbst Relatos\ De\ Angustia ![Relatos De Angustia](/gfx/852127.png) I was a fan of Selbst's self-titled debut back in 2017, and since then they've just gotten better, the production has gotten a strong push and is fuller, sharper, yet keeping that black metal rawness that keeps it from sounding overly polished. As with the debut it's hard to shove Selbst neatly into a box, the songs still careen from blisteringly furious explosions to the more melancholy, and to some extent in that order; the further you dwell the more atmospheric and melancholy the album gets, ending in the almost nine minute long closer _Let the Pain Run Through_. With _Relatos De Angustia_ Selbst has exceeded my wildest expectations from their debut and crafted a truly masterful follow-up, as with many bands we can only wait and hopefully get to catch them live sometime in the future.
