Oskoreien, a one-man project which made an outstanding performance in collection album Der Wanderer über dem Nebelmeer. now comes back with its first full-length album. It is an elegant naturalism Black Metal record which mixes a great deal of folk elements with beautiful clear back vocals. For fans of Wolves in the Throne Room!
I love how bands like Windbruch are pushing the BM envelope. I call this BlackProg. It's wonderful, brutal and soothing. This is currently one of my favorite BM releases. Epic, Heartfelt, heavy and poignant. You don't want to miss out on this. This is the stuff that keeps me coming back to BM. It's at the top of it's class. knutepanhead
An interesting fusion of black metal and jazz, with inspiration from various other forms of metal. There is a lot to like here, and many pleasant surprises. However, it does not always seem to form a cohesive whole. spawnofchaos
