Mobile in Alabama has several art museums, a symphony orchestra, an opera house, a ballet company and historically valuable architecture, and most importantly a band called Finsternis! That band offer a dark, heavy and energetic metal music with a very proper production. The bands states, «Our 1st EP, The Old Tongue, where black and roll meets the sounds laid down by Dissection and other black metal pioneers».
The release was recorded and mixed by Jose Del Rio at River Sound Studio, and mastered by Alan Douches at West West Side Music. Finsternis was formed in 2018 by Duel Guess (Guitars), Ben Watson (Guitars), Jacob Hines (Drums), and Jamie Jones (Vocals). Taking influences from classic black and roll like Venom, Modern U.S. black metal acts like Goatwhore, Bastard Sapling and Cloak while maintaining a healthy affinity for the Swedish melodic black metal popularized by Dissection, Finsternis has a black metal sound ready made for the modern era.
