WROK – DE ONHEILSBODE LP (Heidens Hart Records)

Sunday, December 31st, 2017

Wrok - De OnheilsbodeApologies for this one but there have been many times of late when I listened to Wrok around the clock. ‘De Onheilsbode’ is the Dutch duo’s debut full-length, their only prior releases being some long-forgotten demos from around 20 years ago.

There’s 50 minutes of primitive, ancient-sounding Satanic Black Metal on here, delivered with enthusiasm, passion and intent embellished greatly by a unique but very authentic sound. Truly excellent, nasty stuff.

As well as sounding superb, the record is also tastefully presented (kudos to a wonderful label), so this is a major winner all around. Another exceptional release from the tarnished lowlands.

MORDAEHOTH – LIMBURGIAN PAGAN MADNESS LP (New Era Productions / Heidens Hart Records)

Sunday, May 17th, 2015

Mordaehoth - Limburgian Pagan MadnessThis is one of those cool underground releases that is – ostensibly at least – strictly for the fans. I’m not really familiar with Mordaehoth but I acquired ‘Limburgian Pagan Madness’ as it promises raw(er) material that was previously only available in very small limitation (this, too is limited…), harking back to the days of yore.

While the music isn’t brilliant or mandatory by any means, it is reasonably enjoyable and I was entertained by the liner notes, which demonstrate that Sigwyrd is a Black Metal fan first and foremost. His passion for the genre inspires him to create his own odes and you have to admire him for that.
