I have very little experience with concept albums. In my book that was morea thing of the 70s and the more progressive side of rock but every now and then a modern band tries its hands on the concept album; like Germany’s PAINFUL. Writing an album about the Black Plague is a pretty exhausting task. How do you put that to music? By playing your black metal in a pretty aggressive way but with an epic touch. Not so much symphonic like Dimmu Borgir but more full throttle like Dark Funeral. What sets this apart is the epic side of things. It adds to the storytelling in a way that makes this a really cool record. Anders Ekdahl
