War - Undying Flame Of Abyss!
(More Hate Productions)
Russia is known for its vast and often quality Black Metal scene - and if this 2-piece Russian Black Metal horde BLACK SHADOW is anything to go by, then using the word 'quality' can be highlighted perhaps teeny-weeny more in this act's case. "Война - Негасимое Бездны Пламя!", translated as "War - Undying Flame Of Abyss!" in English, is BLACK SHADOW's 6th studio album in a chronological order, which has been fully been composed and played by Lord Demogorgon. What, in fact, surprises me a great deal about this disc here, Lord Demogorgon has been able to make the album to sound like there's a full band behind this recording - hell, even the programmed drums tend to sound like there could have been a human pounding the drums, with exception of those highly blasting parts, of course. But this certain Black Metal style that he has incorporated into this record, follows greatly some Swedish traditions for a melodic but aggressive Black Metal mayhem. You know, MÖRK GRYNING, DARK FUNERAL, DISSECTION, SETHERIAL and LORD BELIAL; they are some of those names that are about to crawl to mind when spinning this album through - and with a very good production, things get even a bit sweeter here. This is truly some really well made, diabolic Swedish tinged Black Metal that you could have expected such labels as No Fashion or Black Sun from Sweden, churning out back in the day. A pretty darn amazing Russian act this BLACK SHADOW undoubtedly is... check them out. You should not regret in by doing so, I think.
