ASARU “From The Chasms Of Oblivion”

“From The Chasms Of Oblivion”
(Schwarzdorn Records)
I don’t know if the band got the name wrong from the start but I thought that they were called Asatru (as in the worshiping of the Ancient Nordic gods) but the name is actually Asaru. Either way works fine for me. This is supposed to be one of the oldest black metal bands to come out of Belgium. I haven’t heard of them before but then the Belgian black metal scene is pretty much a blank to me. I kinda like this. It wasn’t exactly what I had expected. For some strange reason I thought that Asaru would be more like Ancient but that’s not true. This is more along the way of Gorgoroth and its kind. Black metal somewhere between atmospheric and full on assault. That works for me. I like the way that they go from atmospheric to assault mode. There is a bit of old Dissection to that. And anything that remotely reminds me of Dissection gets two thumps up. Anders Ekdahl
