(Symbol Of Domination)

Battle Helm Rating

I know very little about the Russian mentality even though it is close to 30 years since communism crumbled to its knees. But I get a feeling that there is a common melancholy that lives inside the Russians. They live hard lives where every day is a struggle to make it. So it come a no surprise to me that I am now listening to a DSBM/atmospheric album by TAIGA. Even the band name has a melancholic feel to it. This whole DSBM/atmospheric side of black metal isn’t everybody’s taste but I have for as long as I can remember found beauty in melancholy. And I find beauty in the metal that TAIGA creates. There is a somberness to it that appeals to me. Anders Ekdahl
