It has been a while we have posted some updates about the upcoming/recent releases! The year 2014 has embraced us with some really good news as the ‘originators’ of the black metal as well as some great other bands have announced their full-length releases. Here is a quick suggestions for the bands you can’t miss in 2014.
So the proclaimed “originators of northern darkness” Mayhem (THE TRUE MAYHEM) are finally back with their 5th full length album Esoteric Warfare. It’s going to be their first full-length release after Blasphemer’s departure (and of-course without his contribution since DMDS). So far a single called Psywar has been released. Although it goes in the same pattern as predecessor “Ordo ad Chao”, who knows what surprise the band have for the fans in “Esoteric Warfare”
