Album Reviews

‘The Great Below’ provides real thrills, bringing off the passion of intersecting different genres with exuberant riffs and technical prowess. Like a burning furnace the songs are molded by an aggressive form of modern black metal that blends catchy choruses, melodies, and energetic tempos.

“Devil, Stone & Man” is a worthy album in the band’s discography as on the whole the eight tracks are overwhelmingly heavy outlined by the performance of these German lads.

I Am The Night has mastered its craft on the first full-length album “While The Gods Are Sleeping” what we have here is a supreme embodiment of the Swedish and Norwegian trademarks.

“The Long Defeat” opens a new chapter in Deathspell Omega’s creative oeuvres that seems to conjoin the modern aesthetics with the unorthodox style of avant-garde black metal.
