ORCRIST “The Return Of Armageddon”

”The Return Of Armageddon”
(Iron Fist Productions)

Battle Helm Rating

I love the black metal that came out of Norway in the 90s. The cold, harsh, wintry kind that froze your heart when you listened to it. That kinda came to shape the form of black metal aesthetics for a whole new generation. The simplicity of it all was pretty much its charm. You didn’t need thousands of chords a minute to make cool music. You could repeat the same chord over and over and still create an atmosphere so violent that it hurt listening to it. ORCRIST has that same vibe to this release. It is full of really cool, beautifully harsh and simple black metal. No grand symphonic arrangements. Just repetitive, basic black metal. Anders Ekdahl
