MGLA - With hearts Toward None CD 80,-
Mgła caught us by surprise here… In the follow-up to their classic 2008 debut “Groza”, they present a new take on their grand scheme of things. To put it simply, “With Hearts Toward None” is a manifesto of modern black metal carved into stone.The seven unnamed songs of the album are more atmospheric and melodic than ever, making of “With Hearts Toward None” their most memorable material so far. Yet, there is a cruel, black heart pulsating underneath.
NUMINOUS - Numinous CD 80,-
This work, both musically and lyrically, is completely imbued by the Divine Evil, our living God and Lord. Very rarely is His presence in music so strong and pure as it is here. Hear His voice, read His words and let it change your life. May this opus serve as a stimulant for entering the path of His Laws and may it strengthen and increase the fanaticism of those already walking it. Numinous know previously from demo 2003 released on tape by Northern Heritage.
MGLA - Groza CD 80,-
Mgła’s personal take on modern black metal takes its full shape in their praised debut album from 2008. Whoever hears “Groza” (or Mgła in general for that matter) lightheartedly and superficially. might consider that this is standard BM of scandinavian conviction. He would be fucking wrong. The structure of the songs is extremely clever and adventurous, even progressive one may say. There is a complex, yet organic flow throughout these 36.5 minutes that is nothing short of captivating. The band does not hesitate to insist on some parts and become monotonous, torturing and hypnotizing the listener. A classic masterpiece.
