Sathanas – La Hora de Lucifer

Yes, this is album is a blend of thrash, death, and black metal to be sure. The thrash influence is especially prominent in tracks like “Engraved in the Book of Death” and the title track to name a couple. If you can imagine what it would be like to have claws of the fallen himself [&hellip

Sektarism – Le Son des Stigmates

5 years of self sacrifice and struggle has yielded this expansive sonic 3 song EP that is something that combines the bombastic and raw , drawn out, psychedelic black doom of Burning Witch and The Body, with the unique and growing death rock black metal like Hateful Abandon and Wreck and Reference.
