Wounds of Recollection Atlanta, Georgia

Nostalgia, regret, nihilism, and loneliness fuel WOUNDS OF RECOLLECTION's bright and melodic yet desperate blend of black metal, post-rock, shoegaze, and drone music.

Formed in 2014 and released independently.

Created and produced anonymously by one-man artist, Annos.
