Battle Helm Rating

I gotta admit that I wasn’t that impressed by the band name. And I am still not too sure about it even after having heard this album. To me it reminds me too much of Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds. But then that is just me and my brain. Musically this appeals so much more to me. This is black metal. Not revolutionary black metal in any form or shape yet there is something extremely charming about this that makes me sit up and pay my fullest attention to it. There is such an aura about this that it is hard to not like what I hear. Perhaps one of the best black metal albums I have heard so far this year. I get a feeling that they mix old 90s Norwegian black metal with the more modern atmospheric blackgaze. But whatever it is that they have added to their black metal it sure works wonders for me.
