Country: Italy
Title: Promo 2017
Label: Independent
Year: 2017
Style: Black Metal

This 3 tracks promo reminds me of the good old advance tapes that were used in the '90's to promote an upcoming release; and so this advance CD promotes the band's debut album, Ord-o Acausa Caenaculum, released later in the year on War Kommand Productions. 3 tracks of mid-tempo to fast paced Black Metal building up quite a mystical and sinister atmosphere I have to say I've enjoyed a lot; the compositions are traditional and repetitive on the one hand, but also featuring plenty of refreshing and interesting/surprising turns on the other hand. The production is clear enough yet still sounding organic and crude, fully allowing the band to demonstrate their abilities. The combination they did between traditional repetitive and mesmerizing razor-sharp Black Metal with the current sulphurous, repugnant type of Black Metal, with some hint of Epic (even Viking?) Black Metal resulted into an catchy material, if the complete album is so good we'll probably have another new name to make its way to the top of the genre.
