Battle Helm Rating

Polish black metal with a slight avant garde touch. Does that sound like your trip? It can be a hit or miss thing. Done wrong it is just fucking unbearable. Done right you end up with something like Deathspell Omega or Blut Aus Nord. TOTENMESSE are not a miss. There is a quality to this that keep me listening. And it doesn’t even require that much extra patience to listen to this. I am not saying that this is easy listening black metal. But despite it being a bit awkward this is still not that hard to access. In fact, there is a really cool atmosphere to this that I like. I would even go as far as labelling this atmospheric black metal with an avant garde twist. Nice stuff indeed. Anders Ekdahl
