ENDE “Goétie Funeste”

“Goétie Funeste”
(Obscure Abhorrence Productions)

Battle Helm Rating

Early this year I reviewed the rerelease of “The Rebirth If I” and in that review I mentioned Deathspell Omega. As I listen to this new album by French ENDE I still get a Deathspell Omega vibe but this is so much more black metal than it is avant garde. Somehow ENDE manages to mix different styles of black metal and making it one cohesive mass. I don’t know if it is pure coincidence that this album has a song called “Blokolla” (I guess it is their way of writing Blåkulla, the place all witches fly to during Easter and the street I grew up on) but I thought it was kinda cool. This is in essence an exercise in how to cook black metal soup on many different styles and make it taste good. A really strong black metal album from a band that grow more and more on me.
