Haemoth - Kontamination (2005)

French black metal. It's not full-on art-y French-y, but it's plenty evil and kickass. Saw this in the bargain bin at my work and knew that I'd like it based solely on their having made it practically impossible to read the packaging -- now that's some good old-fashioned elitism. Kontamination is technically an EP, but including "bonus tracks" (that are on pretty much every edition) it's over 45 minutes long.

Track listing:
1. Soiled
2. When the Blood Turns Black
3. Kontamination (Nothing But Hatred)
4. Poisoned Wind
5. Famished
6. Stigma Diabolikum
7. Dependence
8. Aversion
9. Defects and Perversion

Sons of the black light

More French magnificence:
Nahar - The Strange Inconvenience (2013)
VI - De Praestigiis Daemonum (2008)


  1. great blog, can you add my blog in your list ?

    1. Yes! I had you on there, then saw that you got deleted and couldn't find you again. Glad to see you bounced back.

  2. Thanks for this! Be sure to check out Haemoth's guitar players other band Spektr too.
