OATH “Mustan Liekin Veljeskunta”

“Mustan Liekin Veljeskunta”
(Immortal Frost Productions)

Battle Helm Rating

I know that I liked OATH’s previous record so it is with certain air of expectation that I take on this new one. This Finnish black metal entity plays the kind of black metal that has an epic touch to it. You get images of windswept hills and open snow clad fields. It is that kinda frosty black metal. At times this makes me think of the more majestic tracks on Bathory’s “Under the Sign of the Black Mark” and also “Blood Fire Death” mixed with the desolation of early Burzum and Darkthrone. This new album is no different. You still got that sound of desolation. It is almost like there is a ghost that lingers over the music. A feeling of detachment. But is also this sort of melancholy that makes this a really cool record. Anders Ekdahl
