Album: Reveling Of Foul Spirits
Label: Blutige Magie (BLUT-003)
Limitation: 200 Copies
Genre: Black Metal
Initially knowing nothing about this obscure US horde, I picked up this cassette based solely on the merits of label Blutige Magie (home to the mighty Gath Smane and Clementine Vulgate) who, in my mind, can do no wrong. I was not disappointed in the least. Apparently the band's first recording in almost six years, this is near perfect, hateful black metal art that is truly a diamond in the rough among today's climate of pretenders and the current disappointing tendency for every other band to sound like a poor-man's Bone Awl. Oh no - this is icy, weakness-scorning, misanthropic, played in the old way, black fucking metal. Definitely refreshing and highly recommended, I can only hope it's not another six years before we hear from these maniacs again.
As of this writing, extremely limited copies are still available from the always reliable Analog Worship.
