Azoic are a two-piece black metal band from Iceland. Now, I don’t know about a lot of you, but often times when I see that a band is a two-piece black metal band, I freak out and not in a good way. Usually the duo in question ends up being an absolutely horrible Darkthrone clone that sounds like nails scraping on a chalkboard.

Azoic came together as recently as 2011 and is a two man project out of all places, Iceland. This new duo delivers as they put it: “sense thrusting waves of unorthodox black metal”. Featuring members from other groups the likes of Atrum, Beneath and Offerings, Azoic intends on releasing their debut record titled Gateways in the Summer of 2012.
