Battle Helm Rating

Italian symphonic black metal is nothing new to me. Back in the 90s I discovered a whole lotta of this kinda metal thanks to a label called Scarlet. So for 20, 25 years I have been listening to this kinda Italian metal and for every new band I come upon it feels like it is the first time. ADES NUMEN are a raw band in the same kinda school as Carach Angren. It is not totally OTT with the symphonic bits. Instead this focuses more on the rawness and the directness of black metal. I have nothing against the OTT symphonic stuff but this, the more claustrophobic stuff , is easier to listen to. This one turned out to be a really cool one. Anders Ekdahl
