    Deicide - Legion; it was a while I didn't listen to any of their material. Can't help but to notice the gap between this album and anything that came afterwards, in terms of sheer violence and power, there's simply no competition

    Wow so much has happened the last couple of days. Firstly the weather is glorious today. Secondly (and much more importantly) I landed the job! Permanent part time with annual leave, sick leave, and the like. I start August 20th and I'm pretty excited honestly.

    I agree. "Once Upon The Cross" has its moments, but the songwriting is more bland and predictable. I can't get into anything after that.

    Behind every great man, there's a great woman. Behind every camped up, shape throwing, garrulous Black Metal vocalist there's a great song writer. Both of these statements are true, except the second one actually does not commend Abbath as being the imaginative, creative and artistic driving force behind Immortal. This is blatantly obvious if you have heard his solo pop/rock record of a couple of years ago. What "Northern Chaos Gods" does is essentially pull off one of the best tattoo removal jobs in the history of "I Love Sharon" ink stains on most truck drivers (married to a woman called Rose) arm's being obliterated by lasers. Despite a big character no longer being present on this record, I don't for one second miss Abbath. Demonaz and co manage to put out an album that sounds so much like Immortal of old you could be forgiven for crying "Fake News!" at every mention of the turmoil and split between the founding members given the music is as strong as it has been in some while. Demonaz even sounds like a more in control albeit slightly more subdued Abbath. But it isn't the vocals that will get you sweating like a blind lesbian in a fishmongers. Nope, IT'S THE FUCKING RIFFS MAN!!!!!! It is genuinely like getting twatted by an octopus for 42 and a bit minutes, listening to this record. Utterly relentless in their delivery, Immortal just pummel away at you, occasionally throwing an atmosphere building intro before thundering off on hoofed steed to epic landscapes such as "Where Mountains Rise". There's no Judas Priest or Iron Maiden esque dip in output here in the absence of their established frontman here. Demonaz and Horgh have - to put it in layman's terms - just picked up and ran with the established format. Don't get me wrong, it isn't anywhere near the quality of "At The Heart of Winter", alhtough it does piss all over "All Shall Fall". Think of it as being the record "Damned In Black" could have been as a better precursor to the great "Sons of Northern Darkness". They have a song called "Blacker of Worlds"!!! I mean what grown man with the mind of a pubescent boy doesn't think that is cool as fuck??? If the start of closing track "Mighty Ravendark" doesn't bring you out in goose pimples, you're dead inside. Fist pumping, neck snapping metal right here folks. 4/5

    Thanks for suggesting that song. I just put it on and actually liked it a good bit. I couldn't get into this album at all when it came out and I haven't listened to it since, maybe I'll give it another shot. NP: Mournful Congregation - The June Frost

    Well, I haven't done one of these review things in a long ass-fucking time. However, I put on this tape today, and I thought to myself "there is no end to what I can say about this album". Lo and behold, here I am. So firstly, these guys are from Finland and they are NOT an NS band, despite the implication in the name and some song/album titles; all references to NS subject matter are done in respect to history, not some affiliation of theirs. That said, the band is made up of two deranged men-- Nekroführer (guitars, bass, vocals) and Nekrokommando (drums). Together, this duo is able to get quite the traditional Raw Black Metal sound going. We're talking absolutely inhuman shrieks, blistering early Darkthrone riffs, and blast beats upon blast beats. Not to mention the somewhat unique atmosphere and pathos they capture in their music. This pathos I speak of is absolute pain, desperation, hate, and sadness. As you can tell from the title, these guys like to talk about suicide, and their music goes hand in hand with the topic; it is crushing yet also heart-wrenching with its lightning-fast minor scale riffs typical of such Black Metal. I would highly recommend listening to the full album for first-time listeners, but for those who lack the time I suggest the songs "Suicide is Only Way" and "End of Disgusting Life". They truly capture the essence of this album in just a few pummeling minutes. I will end with the youtube link to the full album, cheers all. https://youtu.be/EPMnuJeAkfs

    I'm going to spend some of my leftover money and complete the Deathspell Omega collection. Also bought Dreaming With the Dead by Ripping Corpse for €8, what a deal!
