NAZGHOR
NAZGHOR
Through Darkness And Hell
(Black Plague Records)
61:52min

Release machine NAZGHOR from Uppsala, Sweden have just unleashed their third full-length album upon mankind within only one year. This fact made me very sceptic, as normally bands need a lot longer time for songwriting, rehearsing material and recording and these facts seem to be very easy for these guys to manage. Still I had my doubts, if they can offer another quality output in such a short time, but NAZGHOR once again prove, that their creative output is on its peak at the moment. After a short intro, this hellish horde unleashes nine tracks of freezing darkness and destruction over us. The first track 'Cursed And Unblessed' is a melodic Black Metal hymn, a lot bands around would like to call its own. Freezing, blistering guitars of guitarists Armageddor and Angst, fast, precise drumming and pounding double-bass attacks of drum machine Rimfrost and the harsh vocals of Nekhrid build the basis for their own sound, which has a high recall value in the meantime, especially because of the unique vocals. The changes in their style are on a minimum level at a first view, but while listening to the material more carefully, the development into a more melodic direction, with a lot of melodies, already started on their last album, really stands out now. Especially the third track 'The Infallible God' is by far the best track, the band has written and especially the melody line and also the partly clear spoken vocals are combined to a real remarkable hymn. I would go so far, that this track could also have easily fitted onto "Vittra" or "The Somberlain" without sounding constructed or copied in any minute. They more honour the classic bands, that really made this sound so unforgettable. 'Bathe In Ashes' sounds like their own little homage to the mighty DISSECTION. Of course the remaining six tracks are on a similar high level and this output is another highlight in this genre. Again, you can order the CD directly from the band via their facebook page for ten euros including shipping. But be quick, as again only 500 copies have been pressed.
