This is the real deal – proper underground Black Metal come to terrorize and destroy all you hold dear.
At just over 30 minutes in length it doesn’t mess around; 7 original hymns and a Urgehal cover.
A glance at the song titles and you know what you’re getting. There’s not much mistaking a band with a song called Posercorpse.
But what about the music? It’s Blacker than Black with a better recording than you might expect, which lends the songs an air of freedom to breathe in their skins. A satisfying snare sound and a cold but vital guitar tone seals the deal.
The band play plenty of blast beats but also slow down when necessary to foster an icy, unholy air with twisting melodics; Land of the Heathen being a good example, especially as it unexpectedly features clean vocals. But then Narbeleth likes to throw in the odd unexpected move here and there; such as the guitar solo in Nihilistic Propaganda.
This is exactly what you want from Black Metal.
