Black Blizzard (Germany)



Black Blizzard (Germany)

Black Blizzard (The Art of Evil/Satanica Productions)
This band is from germany and have a very unique and a bit odd dark atmospheric blend of sound between doom, death and black metal. Black Blizzard is also a quite old band in the game and have kept on going since 2004, but as musician in over 20 years. Too sad is that the band is too underestimated and have not got the respectful respond & positive feeback that I think they would get and deserve. This is not a full length, but one hell of a good (and long) ep release from the band that was released in february this year. First track out is "The Art of Evil" (title song) and is absolutely a real killer track that make me think of the early Amorphis, Behemoth and Darkthrone in one, this one I can hear over and over again "damn excellent". Second up "Edge of Death" that is a bit slower, but still got this perfect dark feeling sound in it. Third track "Grave of Slave" starts up good, but does not really have the same energy & sound in it, but is good but a weaker track. Fourth one "Master" delivering some great blackened art in the same position as the first one, this is brilliant! Fifth track of this ep made me think of later Celtic Frost & Triptykon, damn this is great with such a nice sound from the start to the end. Last track "Erased" is just an outro song, but a melodical and dark harmonical one that got the feelings from later Bathory (a bit pagan/folky over it). Over all I can just say about this band that have so far done over nine full lengths and also some ep´s & demos is that if you not have heard or knows anything about this band? You just have to check them out...hmm or him as it is a one man band, Black Blizzard is something to count for. ;)
