Are you in the mood?

Because you must be in the mood for this. If so, follow me down that blackened tunnel to the spot where Narbeleth lustfully indulge in their Black Metal tune.

Their menu: Traditional Black Metal in all its unholy Northern splendor. And this without a lot of the current-day theatrics that we have to put up with.

And let loose with a vengeance on a colossal Alternative and Progressive Metal stage.

Spüken, the new full length of the Canadian metallers Ninjaspy, will do exactly that for you. Chaotic and somewhat unhinged grungy-punk energy outbursts included.

RockmusicRaider Review - Nirvana - Nevermind - Album Cover

Sometimes it is tough to give the past a real hard and unforgiving look. Especially when it comes to emotionally laden and much hyped-about albums like Nevermind from the long-defunct band Nirvana. And there are emotions galore in and surrounding this album and the band itself.

On top of that, one would think that pretty much all was already said, written, or otherwise dispensed of in relation to this album. In books, films and in endless, sometimes contradicting articles on the news or on the never-forgetting internet.

Or was it?
