SURIEL are a fresh force from Shanghai where the black metal scene is rising. The duo black metal outfit chooses to follow the path of classic black metal under Norwegian influences as their striking manifesto. The debut EP "Secret Sacrifice in the Lunar Eclipse" breathes pure darkness and cruelty into the five tracks, including a cover version of Emperor's "Into the Infinity of Thoughts".
"Curse These Metal Hands" parlays the UK bands' chemistry into a record which—for all its tinnitus-inducing ferocity and elegiac arrangements—practically drips with transcendent joy. Bandcamp Album of the Day Aug 18, 2019
