Ancestors Blood - Hyperboria (2016)


Related:
Obscure Burial - God's Abomination (2012) + Epiphany (2014)

Finnish pagan black metal. Epic, passionate, mostly midpaced songs, with a lush, keyboard-heavy sound that's counteracted by an ample amount of dissonance and vicious vocals. One of my favorite black metal records of the year. Free/name your price via the Heidens Hart bandcamp.

Track listing:
1. Descension
2. The Way of the Spirits
3. Autumn (Metsäpirtti Part II)
4. Elegies
5. Hyperborea
6. Rite of Passage
7. Funeral Rite
8. Ascension

Wisdom opens the gates for the king

  1. many thx for this share - definitely an album of the year. it has that extra whatever - it doesn't go where i always expect it to, it goes somewhere better and rocks hard with a psych edge (well, i hear it)
