Discordant delivery from old classics and new contenders – separated by nearly 3 decades – collide in this new instalment of atmospheric black metal. Starting with Bathory, arguably the band that influenced the second wave of black metal the most, a mystical band with a legacy which is difficult to exaggerate, and Strid, although with a meagre and transient output, for those who know it’s considered to be the the purveyor of the DBM sound (ok, after Burzum era Filosofem). Both Quorton (Bathory) and Storm (Strid) gone too soon.
