Legend of Polish black metal - Arkona, now collaborate with Pest Productions on re-releasing the long out-of-print 2nd album "Zeta Reticuli: A Tale About Hatred and Total Enslavement". The re-issue is available with new layout, and sound sources will not be separated but comes as one full track of 41:27 minutes. Hail the lord of mysterious empire!
Though not my preference thematically, this is one of the best sounding black metal albums ever. The drums are perfect, the vocals are insane, and the intensity doesn’t let up. This is far more sophisticated musically than I expected. Good use of samples. A truly weird but brilliant album. Brian3737
"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
