Blackdeath from Russia released earlier this month the album Phantasmhassgorie. The band strives always to improve and develop their black metal music. Blackdeath is a legendary band, and their debut came back in 1998. If we include their demos released as Draugwath and Black Draugwath they have existed even longer. Throughout the years, albums were released through labels such as Northern Heritage, Hospital Productions, Drakkar Productions. 21 years after the debut comes Phantasmhassgorie, the unusual name for the ninth album of an unusual band.
Phantasmhassgorie is a conceptual album around hate. Nauseating and possessed riffs, hateful vocals in German as always, great compositions and performed with military precision. Throughout the years, the band has toured Europa on regular basis with bands like Inquisition, Barathrum, Archgoat, Countess, etc, and as such always managed to escape the trendy subcategories of the genre and create true black metal for devotees only. Let us not forget, this is sincere and for many fans genius dark black art.
