Circle of Ouroborus - Alttarimyllyt

Circle of Ouroborus - Alttarimyllyt
Kuunpalvelus

Another monster release via Kuunpalvelus. You already know I'm going to give this high praise. The first half is the pretty standard CoO black metal they do so well. The B side is all acoustic though, neofolk-ish. That might be off putting to some but it still all sounds like CoO so if you're a fan then you will like this. Kuunpalvelus continues to put out some of the best forward thinking black metal. Between this and Kêres we've been blessed.

Kêres - Battle Secrets

Kêres - Battle Secrets

FINALLY got my hands on this. This and the new Circle Of Ouroborus were releases I was highly anticipating this year and both do not disappoint. This is definitely a must hear for black metal fans. Battle Secrets feels a little more riffy than their previous work but it might also be the production that makes it that way. I found myself headbanging along. The better production also allows for more depth, like keys, to really come through. As with all Kuunpalvelus releases the artwork is also amazing, pick this up if you have the chance.
