Are you in the mood? Because you must be in the mood for this. Yes? Well then, follow me down that blackened tunnel to the spot where Narbeleth lustfully indulge in their Black Metal tune. The band’s newest album Indomitvs just delivers whatever my black metal heart desires this dark morning. Right up there with the likes of Batushka‘s Litourgyia or the ritualistic Darkend.
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. At least this is the first impression. Because the band adds some pretty discreet, yet decently hot spice to their toxic brew.
In short, Indomitvs serves you not only with the old-fashioned and vestigial airs the church burners invented back in time. But the record also garnishes their riffs with subtle symphonics, the eventual blasphemous solo, choir injections (hell yeah…), occasional acoustics and doomish elements. This renders their tune interesting, yet still embedded in the first two waves of Black Metal.
Narbeleth is a one-man band formed in 2008 by Lord Dakkar in Havana. And this renders this album all the more astonishing. In many one-man shows you find outrageous fails in quality, mixing and mastering. Indomnitvs is not one of them. High quality Black Metal from the Caribbean Islands, no less. I can only recommend it.
The album will release end of September 2017.
