Matthew Toye Yellow Eyes remains one of the most important acts currently in the black metal scene in America or any other place on the planet. I have mad respect for them. Favorite track: One Rock For The Wild Dog.

xhrl_ I bought this EP because it is killer blackened metal. Both songs rock, but "One Rock For The Wild Dog" blows me away. I highly recommend this EP to anyone who even has the slightest interest in black metal. I know there is more than blackness in the metal of YE but I do feel it is the best general term to describe it. There's a spirit or feeling to Yellow Eyes' best music which transports or uplifts -- and this is some of YE's best :) Favorite track: One Rock For The Wild Dog.

ProvokingDrama These guys are so promising, always coming out with something new/unexpected just when you need it to! Love the atmospheric sound. Beautiful and black as pitch at once. The voice is so lost in the music, so much despair. Hauntingly heart-breaking. Like not even being loud enough to shout out over the noise of your own anguish.

Track Name: The Desert Mourns
The village fountain mourns the square
Near the salted slimeheads
A man throws handfuls of his blood
His bright teeth

(You should think in solid ways
Look what happens when you don't)

Forget that you were tricked
You lie to the wriggling mess with every thought

Near the salted slimeheads
Red yawns widen and splatter
He spreads his belongings on the sand

I heard something through his prehistoric grin
We were all scarred with tribal wounds
But the clustering force left me alone
There was once a village square
Whose bright floor I swept

Forget that you were tricked
You lie to the wriggling mess with every thought
Track Name: One Rock For The Wild Dog
In the resounding desert
The whale scrapes and feeds on the bugs
Something they gave him makes him sweat
He will not trust them again

One rock for the wild dog
He's not working on the inside
Here's one for right between the eyes

If he misses he will stamp his feet
To break the roof and fall through to the tangling ropes

In the resounding desert
The whale scrapes and feeds on the bugs
Something they gave him makes him sweat

He will not trust them again

(The shimmering dot on the way down the slope)
