Blackened Death from Ukraine
COMMENTS:
Ukraine's Balfor bring blackened death trappings to the table with some epic & melodic moments sprinkled in for some added flavor. The band call their brand of music Barbarian Black Metal & the classic Viking metal sounds as well as the more epic musical pieces lend a real feel of what you would expect a barbarian to sing entering battle. The album tends to lean more towards the death metal side of the genre with symphonic & black metal elements less present than I'd like throughout. However, "Black Serpent Rising" is a solid piece of blackened death. So definitely give this one a spin and prepare to answer the call of barbarian metal!
RECOMMENDED FOR FANS OF:
Amon Amarth, Ensiferum, Miellnir
