ELEGIAC “Black Clouds Of War”

“Black Clouds Of War”
(De Tenebrarum Principio)

Battle Helm Rating

What I like about black metal is that I shows that you don’t have to be a full band to be a band. It is enough to do it alone and still make it sound cool. But then that is kinda in the spirit of black metal, that you are only as strong as yourself. American ELEGIAC play black metal in that true 90s sense of it being cold, harsh and violent. Pretty much like facing a blizzard on the mountain. And no matter how many bands of this kind I hear I still find it as enjoyable as I did the first time I heard it back in the 90s. There is something special to the primitiveness of this sort of black metal that resonates well with me. ELEGIAC has with “Black Clouds Of War” created an album full of the spirit of “I will defeat the elements”. And I like it. Anders Ekdahl
