I always wondered just how long it would take for some Black Metal outfit to turn the mother of all church burnings into a record. And no, this is not about the likes of Varg Vikernes1) who – between other atrocities – garnered some questionable fame by torching a number of spacious abodes of the nailed god.

Instead, it’s French Black Metal that – yet again – caught our attention. RMR here already covered that particular scene a number of times. Corpus Diavolis, Geisterfels, and a few others come … [...] Click to raid more!
