A bone awl is a primitive tool made for punching holes in leather. The band plays harsh, lo fi, guttural, punk influenced black metal. The duo’s sound is raw, unrefined, lo fi, appropriately underground and a classic black metal act.
Back in 2002 Bone Awl was playing black metal in a style that no one had ever heard and they started down a path that USBM maintained (generally speaking) for a decade. Besides for that, the major music apps (like Spotify, Pandora, Google music, etc.) don’t have any of their music, which is annoying but gives them credibility as a black metal band.
I’ve been listening to this discography for hours and honesty isn’t close to getting old. Some release are better than others and there are a couple outright wonky ones in there, but in so far as discographies go this one is stellar, 96%.
