The info tells me of "War/Black Metal" and, even worse, of the band starting out together with BEHERIT. Not exactly what makes me look forward to a CD...
So, CD into the player and then brace for the worst - a dark invocation, but no music yet. Alright, so let's brace again - and then it really almost knocked my off my chair, but not because of the dreaded icy blast of northern frost, but because I had not expected this: mid- to slow-paced Black Metal with a good bit of melody to it. That hit home!
With the rhythm and sometimes also the guitars reminding me a bit of folky Metalians like THE LORD WEIRD SLOUGH FEG, "The Darkness Has Landed" comes over very unexpected, always melodic and also with a few keyboards to it. "Virgin Blood Spiller" let's loose the mid-paced double-bass here and there and the best track "I Am Very Possessed" (are they really serious?) presents us with symphonic keyboards accentuating the guitars and building up a quite interesting atmosphere.
I like positive surprises like this. Want more!
Oh, and this band really not only has two guitarists, but also two (!) bassists...
