DIABOLI : Awakening of Nordic Storm CD
Legendary Finnish Black Metal band DIABOLI makes unexpected return with new full length album. Highly praised Wiking Division set slightly different tone for Diaboli, compared to their early cold anti-christian Black Metal. Awaking of Nordic Storm is blunt fist in the face, guaranteed gruesome assault from DIABOLI. Sonically close to era starting from Kirous album. Displaying core elements of barbaric riffs, ugly simplistic production and boldly explicit lyrics that makes even big parts of metal scene beware and keep distance towards the True Black Metal. Digipak CD edition with lyrics printed on cover. April 2021. NH-108.
PHLEGEIN : Labyrinth Of Wonder mCD
From the shadows of Finnish Black Metal underground, returns Phlegein with new mini album. Intro and four songs continue the path band has chosen. Always couple steps forward, introducing something new, yet keeping faithful for the foundations that Phlegein is known for.
Phlegein has always focused on good song writing, lyrics where vision is clearly to be seen, sound that is sharp and to the point. ”Labyrinth of Wonder” displays that despite low profile and rejection of most of genre publicity may leave most people unaware of their existence, Phlegein is a force that one should acknowledge among the very best of contemporary Finnish Black Metal.
CLANDESTINE BLAZE : Secrets Of Laceration CD
Secrets of Laceration takes notable steps further toward direction CB has been heading over last few albums. Most of the songs have rejected the traditional rock structure and flows forward with different approach.
Less of verse/chorus -type, more advanced riff- and song writing and being perhaps the slowest and heaviest of Clandestine Blaze albums, does not mean it would not be violently ugly. Fuzzy veil of distortion is drilling mercilessly on top of music. Despite clarity and fullness, nothing is very easy listening.
In times when a lot of Finnish Black Metal is characterized by uplifting and almost joyful qualities, Clandestine Blaze reeks of destructive energy, bleakness and malignant qualities of known from the original malevolent Black Metal. Bizarre discordant melodies, hard hitting metal riffs, slow paced apocalyptic visions and fierce fast assaults are all blended together into one album.
