Album Reviews

Ceremonial Castings eleventh album “Our Journey Through Forever” is an introspective record that highlight’s the band’s past works.

Mystic Circle’s self-titled album delivers brilliant musicianship, arguably the eighth album is their most aggressive and melodic piece of black metal.

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.

“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.

Warmoon Lord masterly conjures orcish themes and fantastic symphonies on the sophomore effort ‘Battlesspells’.

‘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.

“La Morsure du Christ” beautifully emphasizes the majestic and the grim vocal performance, the songs are carried in the exuberant form of tremolo picked-riffs. Illustrating a powerful presentation throughout forty-four minutes of duration.

Fans who have anticipated the return of this Swedish black metal band, rest assured: ‘Hinsides Vrede’ combines the spine-chilling symphonies of the Nordic black metal.

‘Effigy of Nightmares’ is a big improvement from the sophomore. Valdrin has succeeded in taking their craft to a professional level.
