In a switching of gears from our last premiere, it's time for something a little more Fall appropriate: depressive black metal, but with a serious twist.

After seeing a U.K. stream through Zero Tolerance, Metalunderground.com is now proud to host the North American exclusive premiere of Germ's appropriately titled "Loss" (reviewed here).

Check out all six devastatingly avant-garde tracks from the release below (the player may take a few moments to load the first song after hitting "play"). The music speaks for itself, but if you want to know what you are about to get into, consider the ending lines of our review: "If David Bowie decided to do an album with Burzum, while both were under the influence of LSD, the end result would likely be something like 'Loss.' This one’s going to strongly appeal to fans of the insanity of Devin Townsend who want the black metal cred of Peccatum to boot."

You can also see what band mastermind Tim Yatras had to say about the release himself in this recent interview.

Begun as a solo project by Austere member Tim, Germ was conceived as early as 2003. The idea behind Germ was to create something that not only combined atmospheric black metal and rock - Tim has become known for with his love of classical, pop and electronic styles of music - but to create an image and visual aspect to accompany the music.

For more info on the project, head over to the Germ Facebook profile here, and you can also order the EP at this location. The "Loss" track listing is as follows:

1. My Only Hope
2. So Lonely, Dead Lonely
3. Only When Every Timepiece In The World Is Smashed Part I
4. Only When Every Timepiece In The World Is Smashed Part II
5. Cold Grey Dawn (A New Beginning)
6. Loss
