Valle Crucis EP

Southern Black Metal with a taste of local lore
COMMENTS:
It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of black metal in general. But when black metal mixes in lore, whether cultural or local, that obsession increases tenfold for me. With their self-titled EP, Valle Crucis delivers some kickass black metal with one song inspired by local lore. The opening track if Googled, will provide you the material that inspired the track. But all fanboy speak aside, for a demo, this EP is really impressive. You get swirling, raw, undiluted black metal through and through. I am thoroughly impressed with these seven songs and cannot wait for a full length release from the band.
RECOMMENDED FOR FANS OF:
Arckanum, Geist
