Those that were able to see Lluvia play at Dissociative Visions last month will undoubtedly recall the impression the Mexican black metal entity made upon those assembled. The band is led by Lord Vast, who acquired a live lineup for its maiden festival appearance, and delivered one of the strongest performances of a weekend marked by jaw-dropping excellence. If you missed out on the live spectacle, you may now take solace in the fact that Lluvia's new album, Eternidad Solemne, is now streaming on Bandcamp.
Surrender to its grandiose melancholy and chilling, atmospheric splendor, and remember to grab a physical copy from either Fallen Empire or Amor Fati if you crave wax, or from Grey Sun if you're down with the cassette revival.
