BALMOG ”Vacuum”

(War Anthem Records)

Battle Helm Rating

BALMOG is a name that I have seen floating around in the metal scene for some while now but somehow I’ve never gotten round to checking them out. Which is a shame now that I finally get to hear an album by them. This is black metal but it is not your typical (if there ever is a typical) black metal sound. I get the feeling that this is much more introspective than for example Dark Funeral. In that sense they have more in common with a band like Deathspell Omega. But this is not as avant garde. If you like your black metal with a bit brain and with that epic feel you really should give this a chance. I now know that I should have given this a chance a long time ago. Anders Ekdahl
