Quote from label: Krowos come from Italy, and have a peculiar method of doing things. Musically they play a rich darker black metal found with a focus towards bass guitar/funeral doom territory without the monotonous bleak cacophony. Like Nastrond, Inferno or Bethlehem with a vocalist similar to the Japanese Sabbat. In the past years the French have reshaped the black metal landscape. Malepeste follows that path, however in their own fashion. Simple straight forward lyrics/concepts meets a hauntingly sophisticated sound heeding influences from bands like Mare, Deathspell Omega, Dødsengel, Antaeus and Urfaust.
Quote from label: Lost Life a legend in german Black Metal since 2000 now crushing the human scum with modern Depressive/Urban Black Metal.: "The Cur(s)e of Karma" will heal your scarred souls and your broken minds!
The new album from NECROMASS, "Calix. Utero. Babalon."
Recorded at Nadir Music Studios and produced by Funeral Industries, it represents the official comeback for the black metal cult band, 17 years after the last full lenght "Abyss Calls Life" (1996). An evocative portrait of Tilla Durieux as Circe, made by German symbolist painter Franz von Stuck in 1913, has been chosen as album cover.
This one is a stroke of genius. Nordic Folk? Ha! This is much more Svarti Loghin captured the cold atmosphere and transfers this into a mixture between ancient folk art, and Johnny Cash(!). Between a prayer, depression, devotion and pure love for live. To be honest: just listen to it ´cause I can´t describe it in words.
