Album Reviews

Bekëth Nexëhmü’s fourth album encapsulates the essence of bands like Ulver, Satyricon and Burzum and draws nearer to the themes of depressing black metal.

Ars Hmu’s debut full length “Empire of Impurity” is as grim and cold as the Norwegian and Swedish black metal counterparts that falls between the atmospheric and the symphonic form of black metal.

“Hymn To The Woeful Hearts” emphasizes epic melodies where Pure Wrath inflects the listener with many pivotal moments on their third album.

“Trisagion” offers a grand spectacle of how modern atmospheric black metal and funeral doom can be effectively engaging and powerful when merged.

Í Myrkri’s third album “Bag Skyggernes Slør” is deeply atmospheric and imaginative, the songs nourish on chilling tremolos and ambient synth soundscapes.

Mastermind Swartadauþuz takes the frosty elements of lo-fi black metal and carves sonic landscapes of a wintry opus on the third outing “De Fornas Likgaldrar”.

Arkhtinn on the sophomore “二度目の災害” convey the kind of haunting wonderment that evokes the eerie sounds of atmospheric/symphonic black metal.

Olio Tähtien Takana on its third epic endeavor ‘Spectral Katharsis’ gives a lesson on how to achieve an epic orchestral style of black metal.

‘Primordial Arcana’ sprawls with epic majesty and raw black metal that is beautifully woven with synth passages, soothing rhythm and arcane mystical poetry that grabs back to their roots.

‘Dy’th Requiem for the Serpent Telepath’ is a lengthy album, containing twelve songs that combine into a seventy-seven minutes mystical overture. The album is built on lofty musical arrangements that manifest in different tones of atonal symphony.
