LURK “Fringe”

(Transcending Obscurity Records)

Battle Helm Rating

From what I can gather this is a rerelease of an 2016 album by Finnish atmospheric black death sludge doom metal lords LURK. I am fascinated by how many band there are in Finland and how few I know of. And how many different styles they all play. LURK are heavy in that dragging the cross up Golgatha way. This moves in tiny, yet heavy steps. Don’t go expecting to be happy from listening to this. This is pure misery and angst all the way to the top. But it is done so bloody well that I cannot but sit here and grin like a fool. This has a groove that is irresistible. Once you start listening you cannot stop. Anders Ekdahl
