Satan ex machina pt.III

Conclusion of  a series of references to worth mentioning and listening records that blend black metal with industrial sound or/and aesthetics.

Dødheimsgard - 666 International

No surprises here. An instant classic that leaves no space for a lot of words. A work of a genius collective that remains unsurrpassed more than ten years after its release. Black metal was not the same after this work of satanic black art. The Lord smiles triumphantly.

3 - 666 Knives to the Son's Heart 

This is a personal favourite of mine. 3 has four works released, all in demo form. Personally I love all of them. Cold, harsh, mechanical, hateful black metal that gains from its own defects. Listen or fucking die. Or better, listen and fucking die.

Abigor - Fractal Possession 

Contrary to the opinion of the flock, I used to find the old Abigor works to be mediocre attempts by obviously talented individuals. Most of those records showed promise and potential that usually remained unfulfilled. Until Fractal Possession came to punish me for losing faith in them. This is the record that will place Abigor to the pantheon of black metal. No more cheap Emperor-isms, just harsh, dark bm that is full of dark inspiration. No wonder that the low life 'true' bm kiddies failed to understand its magnificence. Thank Satan for that.

Currently listening to:
Master's Hammer - Mantras (time was not kind with their looks but was generous with their talent)
Mortuary Drape - All The Witches Dance 
Borgia - Ecclesia
Rising Of Yog-Sothoth - Tribute To Thergothon

1000 curses...
