BLOOD OF THE BLACK OWL
“Light The Fires”
(Bindrune Recordings)
This is not a new band for me. I have their previous efforts but I can’t say that I to this day fully understand them in order to get the most out of them. Perhaps my approach has been totally wrong. Instead of seeing them as the savior of American “black metal” I should look upon them as an entity all its own. Forget everything I’ve read and just let the music take me on a journey. But then again this isn’t your typical metal album. Well it isn’t metal in any musical way- more in spirit. There is a more shamanistic approach to this than to most (or all) other albums. This isn’t the type of record you put on if you want to party like there is no tomorrow. In my more somber moments I can fully appreciate this kind of music. This is for those of you with a totally open mind. Anders Ekdahl
