Debut-album by up and coming Black Metal horde MASSEMORD (from Norway).
The long-awaited full-length debut-album "Skogen Kaller" (translation: "the forest calls") from Norway's MASSEMORD! Formerly known as EFEST in ancient times, Bergen-based MASSEMORD are diehard purveyors of True Norwegian Black Metal in the classic Nordic and Viking Metal vein of pioneers ENSLAVED, GORGOROTH, SATYRICON, DARKTHRONE, CARPATHIAN FOREST, old ULVER, etc., with a strong BATHORY influence!
The "classic" Nordic / Viking Black Metal sound is quickly disappearing from Norway's landscape, but along with established Norwegian bands such as IMMORTAL, ORCUSTUS, ENSLAVED, CARPATHIAN FOREST, DARKTHRONE, TSJUDER, GORGOROTH, TRELLDOM, GAAHLSKAGG, BLOODTHORN, TAAKE, and a few others (well, this list is actually longer than we thought!), the release of this new debut album by MASSEMORD will certainly help to prevent the extinction of this hallowed and elite Norwegian sound!
Supporting MASSEMORD's mainman LORD HASTUR WARMACHINE are: vocalist and bassist DER HENKER and two guitarists, HATI and VRAITH, the latter three on permanent loan from cult Italian band HATE! For those diehard fanatics who are at the point of despair due to the apparent near-extinction of the True Norwegian Black Metal sound, take (Blackened) heart: MASSEMORD is here!
WE STAND FOR ETERNAL WAR AND EVERLASTING DARKNESS!"
