5.0 classic
Behemoth Evangelica Heretica
Awesome live album. Again Behemoth proves they're as good live as in the studio. It's really a tight and kick ass band. Capture, production and mix are perfect. I recommand to any fans of the band, a must to own.
Death The Sound of Perseverance
Enthral Prophecies of the Dying
This album is amazing. It's a collection of outstanding riffs at both guitars and bass, yeah even bass has some
riffs at some point on the album (track called 'A divine tragedy'). The drum work is great too. Various beats,
double bass drums but not all the time nor blast beats, lots of pretty fills throughout.

Production is better than the classics of the genre which I think is a plus because you can hear all the
instruments. I would compare it to that of Immortal's SND.

Vocals are standard BM and to me are perfect. In some tracks you can hear a woman singing but not formtje
entire track. And it's not like symphonic BM bands.

Final summation: a must in a classic BM collection! Try it out you won't be disappointed.
Gorgoroth Pentagram
Immortal At the Heart of Winter
Been listening to it many times and well, this one is classic to me From start to finish, this album just soothe my brain.

4.5 superb
Apostasy [SWE] Devilution
To me this is a quick ass album. It's black metal with an hint of death. The drummer does an excellent job.
Double bass drums that I would risk myself to compare to that of Amon Amarth, 'cause it's not all over the
place and pretty well dosed. The pace is changing so it's never boring to listen. The guitar work is
awesome. The various riffs are hooking. Most of the songs are instant head-banging.

Solos are pretty good and pretty well dosed throughout. Bass does it's job too and you can hear it quite
well from time to time. There's keyboards and piano, yep keyboards and piano. But wait. It's all done to
give an atmosphere and are not annoying I swear.

Finally the singer: awesome! He's able to change is voice many times even within the same song.
Sometimes he sounds like a pure black metal singer, other times more like a death metal singer. Anyways,
it's good.

Final summation, this album will give you instant eargasm. It's fun and easy listening all the way through.
Not a single song is boring. I forgot to mention that contrary to a lot of BM albums this, one has a great
production. All instruments including vocals are appropriately balanced so you can blast this soothing
music down your ears as loud as you can. Enjoy !

I've been listening many times to this album and Gee, it's getting better each time I listen to it.rAgain and again!
King of Asgard Fi'mbulvinter
This is an excellent album to sing along, filled with great anthems folk like, a bit viking like I may suggest. All instruments are well balanced and do their job quite effectively. Hence, the vocals are just awesome. In the first track of the album you know already what the singer is capable of, just by hearing the sustained scream at the beginning. Fun listen all the way through, just like an Amon Amarth album. It never gets boring and all songs have its own little thing. Definately a must for the genre.

This album delivers awesome metal right down your ears. Not a single boring song. From first to last, you get screams, roarings, guitars, bass and double bass-drums all blended together to create a brutal mixture you can't listen but at highest volume possible on your sound system. Put it on repeat even better!

Pure Evil and Dante's Inferno are possibly two songs out of the, let's say, 20 top best live performance ones ever. Classic metal to me.
Immolation Close to a World Below
Immortal Sons of Northern Darkness
Immortal Diabolical Fullmoon Mysticism
Well, I love all my Immortal albums. They're all classics to me. I give it a 4 because the more I listen to it, the more I like it. However, this is not my favorite of them all still. But it deserves a 4 for sure.

Rage Soundchaser
I discovered this German band not long ago, and frankly, this is a really great band. This album is a great assembly of metal music with dramatic classic or symphonic music. Really cool mix, because it is really well arranged. There's not just Rammstein out there making good stuff. Rage is a band to know about for sure! And this album in particular.

I'm cranking my rating because after a few more listens, I find this album excellent. It's not repetitive and the riffs are awesome and quite entertaining. It's raw, in your face and classic black metal production.

Good old school trash metal. It'll remind you of some of the classics of the genre. Really entertaining. Production is awesome. First track is right in your face. Riffs are fast and furious. Drums powerful. Bass sounds like Testament's. Final summation: great album!

This album is really entertaining. It sounds good, it's technical and full of tempo variation. Sound quality is
great. You cannot be disappointed. I like the hilarious exchange b/w a father and his 26 year old son in second
to last track and also the last track which is a cover. Check it out!

I think it's a great album in the sense it's been executed and produced in one of the rawest form. I'd say in the traditional tr00 NBM way. I thaught I would never find rawer than Ordo Ad Choas from Mayhem, but now I just did with this album. Final summation: it's not for casual BM listener. You gotta be big on BM. Espacially in its purest and rawest form and expression.

I like this band a lot. This album is pretty good. Need to listen more of it for final judgement but it is definitely
worth a listen because it is classic BM and the musicianship is really good.
Vader Revelations

3.0 good
Averse Sefira Battle's Clarion
First listen-worth a 3 for now. I'll give a more thorough listen and will adjust later. Some good riffs, reminding me of Immortal. This band seems to be a strange mix of black and death. Interesting.
Conqueror War Cult Supremacy
For now I rate it good. This album is very very brutal and the brutality is almost relentless throughout. It rapes your ears. There's a lot going on and you gotta be in the mood to listen to this agression. I'm not saying it's bad. I'm used to pretty hard stuff but I must admit this one is really one of the most brutal I've heard in a while. A infernal visit down below...
