Hetroertzen - Exaltation of Wisdom (2010)

Chilean/Swedish black metal. Having put out three records of great but generic black metal, Exaltation of Wisdom, the band's first album following their relocation to Sweden, finds the band embracing a more lysergic, ritualistic sound that's enhanced by a darker, more cavernous atmosphere.

Track listing:
1. Incinerating Illumination
2. Like the Serpent
3. Perpetual Eclipse Stigmata
4. The Final Breath of Mankind
5. Mystery of the Fallen
6. Light Beyond the Obscure
7. The White Priestcraft

I saw a girl like a bird falling from the sky
With burning wings naked like a fullmoon winter
A crowned serpent from each breast
Radiating eyes and mouth
Her voice was a terrifying scream
Causing death and extinction
