Supruga. Post modern darkness.

I got into more aggressive music in the early 1990s, which was an interesting experience: Labeled both “heavy metal” or “hard rock” synonymously from the outside, those who were into this kind of acoustic entertainment used to have quite some nuanced understandings of sub genres and styles that needed to be kept well separated.
