The Alchemist’s Cave is dedicated to the promotion of atypical and lesser-known black metal. Aside from a few of my early posts (where I hadn’t fully fleshed out this site’s purpose), every band written about here I wholeheartedly believe in and think demands a wider audience. Independent and solo acts make some of the most interesting music in the world, and no deserving artist should go unnoticed simply because they aren’t signed to a label or subscribe to the modern hollow avalanche of social media and shameless self-promotion.
Feel free to contact me if you have something you feel fits my mission. If you wish to see work not subjugated to the strict definition of this site’s purpose, I also write about various other subgenres for Cvlt Nation and Metal Bandcamp. And if you’re curious, check out what I’m digging on Bandcamp or Last.fm.
