ODOUR OF DEATH - SATANIC DEVOTION - LOWER SILESIAN STRONGHOLD - 2020
Satanic Black Metal 
The British band Odour Of Death, recently created (2016), is playing pure satanic Black Metal. Except that they're not really British (Kolan, the band's leader is a well-known figure of Polish Black Metal, at the base of radical projects like Antisemitex or Severe Storm) and the vocalist here present (R.Hate) is also Polish and known for his participation in Havocum. The two Poles "exiled" in Great Britain remain in close contact with the Polish scene through their label, Lower Silesian Stonghold). Here are the introductions made! No politics or societal subjects here as in the other projects of the two Slavic warriors: Odour Of Death is entirely dedicated to the glory of the great horned man and to the veneration of his coming reign. Satanic to the end of its nails, Odour Of Death distills a warrior Black Metal, very comfortable in mid-tempo, whic…

DIABOLICAL PRINCIPLES - WISTFUL WHISPERS (2019 LSS)
Listen to the album here



Today band is nicely called Diabolical Principles, a very appropriate name that I think it is useless to translate. We leave Poland to visit Greece at the bedside of this very pleasant group whose radicalism is not political but rather oriented towards blasphemy and the worship of nature and its divinities. Musically we are faced with a rather atmospheric and melodic Black Metal, of all beauty, with sometimes some passages that can evoke Summoning or Burzum in the most "soaring" passages. Indeed, the combo is more in love with languorous tempos than with car races. Since 1999 (yes, still no newcomers) the Athenians have been delivering their Black Metal to the Orthodox world and beyond. Personally I didn't know them before this album (we can't know everything either) and I admit I take great pleasure in listening to his black melodies certainly but sometimes enchanting!

OHTAR - EMPTINESS (2019 LSS)


An historical band, Ohtar have been speaking loudly since 1996 (yes!). Rather melodic and bewitching, the band's Black Metal is steeped in melancholy and darkness, even in this absolutely inhuman song that comes out of the glottis of a certain Necro (well known to Polish Black Metal fans because of his many projects and bands). Of course the band also likes to evoke hatred and defend radical ideals, to say the least, but it does so on a rather slow musical fabric, sometimes close to some Capricornus tracks or even, blasphemy supreme, to a DSBM atmosphere. The tracks are long, stretched, carried by series of inspired and engaging riffs. As the listens went by, we thought that Ohtar, if they hadn't made this choice of radicalism, could probably have become a fairly well-known band in Black Metal, but they preferred the shadows and the bad guys, tirelessly carrying their cross (the one you want) against all business and contemporary soci…
