Kamal I heard this on Radio Fenriz and OH MAN OH MAN OH MAN OH MAN!

This is a damn near perfect record, perfectly blending black sensibilities with proper heavy metal. The construction and composition is dynamic, the production is spot on, everything is dramatic and heavy as hell. I can't wait for more!

Wallow Within Exeptionally good album with a sense for some great melodies without losing the hardness of some good old Black Metal. Favorite track: Move In Chaos.

Helhest Slaegt was, along with Venefixion, among my best of 2015 bands. Both craft the portentous sound of Iron Bonehead. Slaegt delivers a blackened heavy metal with lots of catchy moments, played fast but without the usual blastsbeats, exploring sound patterns that seem familiar in this kind of music, but always making them sound fresh. The darkness within the riffs and lyrics flows with dark blasts of energy. To revisit and revisit at no risk of boredom. Favorite track: Move In Chaos.

Ever restless, Denmark's SLÆGT present an exclusive new 12" mini-album for IRON BONEHEAD, Beautiful and Damned. This MLP is aptly titled: Beautiful and Damned shows SLÆGT shedding its previous skin, from the celebrated Ildsvanger debut earlier this year, into something more kaleidoscopic, multi-hued, and yet equally menacing. Gone is the blown-out black metal grimness of SLÆGT Mk I; here, with the lineup now doubled in size and live rituals more frequent, a sort of blackened epic metal emerges. Songs are no longer minimalist exercises in lurking menace; instead, the full furl of classic heavy metal's narrative powers are played out across the three main epics of Beautiful and Damned, buttressed by an indeed beautiful acoustic instrumental. Comparisons can be drawn to comrades Reverie, who now share members with SLÆGT, but more than mere on-the-surface stylistic similarities, it can be argued that these impossibly energetic youths are drawing from an eternal wellspring of inspiration, and SLÆGT, for their part, are keeping a still-fertile toehold in black metal. Beautiful and Damned closes one chapter, and begins another...
