This band gets so little attention, and that’s just wrong since they are AMAZING. Why? They are Christian black metal. Sure, it sounds like a bit of an oxymoron at first but give it a listen and take in some of the lyrics and you’ll soon realise that their being Christian just brings a whole other theological basis to draw inspiration from. And indeed, some of the themes of sorrow they sing for really intrigue me, this verse in particular stayed with me.
“Satan and god, the thought passes my mind Heaven and hell, it’s not up to me If the Christians that I’ve seen Represent the true God of heaven Then it’s not a place that I want to be But if I’m blinded, please open my eyes And help my now…”
If you know how I stand with religion than you’ll see why this band appeals to me so much, they are thinking outside the box and I love it. Oh, and that’s Hellhammer on the drums, if you were wondering. Surprised?
