VICE Premieres: "Black Sea of Trees" by Northumbria

Northumbria is from Canada and they make ambient metal that is cold, and bleak, and makes me want to do sex to an ice cube.

What is it about this time of year that makes me want to listen to metal, have violent sex, and then drink/eat seasonal flavored items and indulge in over-spending? Perhaps you feel the same way? Well, if you don't, you're wrong and don't know how to work your own life.

Northumbria is an ambient metal duo from Canada and they wrote me the nicest message and asked if I'd be into premiering their song "Black Sea of Trees." Not only will I ABSOLUTELY premiere that shit, but I'm also considering changing my name to Black Sea of Trees.

Feel the gloom. Bring it into your chest like a wad of Kleenex run under hot water and then wrapped in a cool rag. Steamy. Strange. Moldy weirdness. (I literally just wrote a poem).
