INFO: Golden Death Music does more than glint, his music truly shines like the sun! I’m more than impressed, his latest homemade album Ephemera Blues is by far the best guitar-orientated music that I have heard since Elliot Smith’s Either/Or (RIP), although it sounds nothing like him really, so ignore all that. Instead I’ll take the radical step of saying what Ephemera Blues does sound like. In short, it sounds much like the artist’s name itself: it is golden death music. It is like death, but not horror show death or anything ghastly like death metal death, but something more ancient, more spiritual, more intangible - not something to be afraid of, but something to embrace, something blissful: an opium dream - something golden.
