Blackdeath – Gift (LP)
Blackdeath is the most wellknown band from Russia. Gift is their eighth album, the band continues in their own style of disturbed and intense apocalyptic black metal, yet it’s their fastest album so far. If you are not familiar with the previous albums like Phobos or Katharsis, expect a very harsh and extreme sound, yet with avantgarde riffs, strange tempos and almost progressive song structures; all performed with razor sharp and militant precision. Blackdeath follows its own path and are among the most dedicated individuals I have ever met. First 100 copies come with free poster. Mastered by Devo / Marduk. Click for photos.
