Black Metal Is War


Ever get the feeling that the apocalypse is just around the corner? Or that a nuclear holocaust is foreseeable in the near future? Thats the feeling i get when listening to Nargaroth's 2001's epic, 'BlackMetalIstKreig', is diabolical, cold, and raw. 'BlackMetalIstKreig' Is Kanwulf's tribute to black metal, although he will be the first one to tell you that Nargaroth doesn't play black metal(because he doesn't sing about satan). He sure fooled me, because this is straightforward Bleak-as-Fuck BlackMetal. The title track seems to be the stand out track of the album, but there are so many good songs. Nargaroth has sometimes been seen as a NSBM band, but so much of the evidence is hear say and self promoted controversy. He even rejects national socialism in a few interviews and calls it narrow minded and mentally restrictive. You also have to love the blatant rip off VargVerkienes in the album's cover. Nargaroth has to be one of my favorite BLackMetal bands, and this album is the reason.

The link doesn't point to the record but to a broken link to a photobucket image.
I don't know if that was intentional or not.
Bad linking ist krieg, I suppose.
