Skjult is actually a Norwegian words that in English means hidden. I addition Skjult is also a Cuban black metal band. The band are now actual with the album Progenies Ov Light of 41 minutes and 43 seconds. Skjult is a one-man band that provide a raw but tasty black metal that probably many of the genre lovers would enjoy enormously? Skjult, through whith its lone member Conspirator channels his dark and devilish creative impulses. 2016 brought forth Skjult’s first album,
There’s still a rawer edge to the instrumentation throughout the new record, but compared to Skjult’s debut the production values come off feeling more polished and there is clear separation between the guitar, bass, and drums that work together to deliver a bleak sound. The new album, which consists of seven songs and a bonus track that appears as a tribute to the deceased Norwegian Trond Alastor Nefas (Urgehal/Beastcraft).
There is plenty of blast beats and speed on Progenies Ov Light but Dawn Of An Era Ov Light is one of the slower numbers and it uses that to its advantage with riffing that portrays a sense of destruction and desolation. Skjult’s second full length has taken the elements from the band’s debut and refined them further, delivering a destructive release that pulls from a number of clear influences but never sounds too close to one particular group. We probably should keep an eye on Cuba as the country has produced some hellish black metal on par with other parts of the world.
Strong riffs combined with the fastest blast beats and the deepest and cruel vocals sounds emerging from the very depths of the abyss may be a proper description of this album. The album is very aggressive and very cold, and a real black metal fan would probably raise his or hers eyebrows after listening to the music from Conspirator. Progenies Ov Light is recommended for fans of Dark Funeral, Funeral Mist, Urgehal, Beastcraft, early Belphegor, and Watain.
