Rarely does an album cover so accurately convey the atmosphere of the music, and so as it appears, so Servants of the Cold Night sounds. Raw, primitive, and cold, you will feel alone and vulnerable listening to this album, the lone wanderer on a desolate, rocky expanse, awaiting your death from exposure to the unknown under an ominous night sky. Recommended.
Favorite track: The Black Oath.
If you're still pining for some 'trve kvlt' black metal, then Andeis's debut might fit your bill. It was recorded in winter and sung in a tongue that is rarely spoken, so yeah. Even if you aren't, then this is still for you.
Favorite track: Hailag leik.
"Curse These Metal Hands" parlays the UK bands' chemistry into a record which—for all its tinnitus-inducing ferocity and elegiac arrangements—practically drips with transcendent joy. Bandcamp Album of the Day Aug 18, 2019
