“Angel of Carnage Unleashed” is full of a menacing atmosphere and bombastic orchestral arrangements that will bring Darkwoods My Betrothed to the turrets of its fame.

“Where Fear and Weapons Meet” reforms the signature sound of these Ukrainian warmongers who conjure a grim sense of fierce black metal.
