AOTY 2018 contender. Blood Music knows how to pick them. This is simply a first rate black metal album. The riffs are powerful and the drums are potent, but everything sounds less forced and more organic than you’d expect. This band just sounds way better than so many of the raw black metal bands, but that’s clearly the lane they’re in. That being said there are clean vocals and doom elements, so I shouldn’t pigeonhole these guys.
Favorite track: Solace Eclipsed.
