Barbelith are an atmospheric black metal band from Baltimore and New Orleans, coming forth with a forward thinking sound which dwells in the realms of post metal and black metal. After a long hiatus, the band have finished their most recent release, Deathless Master

A lengthy track which serves as an emotionally charged expedition, Deathless Master offers a profound and introspective journey.
