666 At Calling Death has an interview with Mika Luttinen of Impaled Nazarene where he clearly states there is animosity between Finnish and Norwegian black metal bands. I am not sure when it happened, but that animosity has apparently faded into obscurity.┬áSince the birth of Satanic Warmaster, the Finnish scene has been drawing more and more influence from the once forbidden Norwegian second wave of black metal. Teloch’s new album, if you know anything about...

  Here we have some real solid 2nd wave esque hateful Black Metal. A good mix of crushing powerchord riffs over lightning blasts, with a nice touch of evil sounding melody here and there to keep things fresh. Recommended for fans of Mayhem, and Gorgoroth. Tight musicianship paired with fitting production quality help this band stand out from the many black metal bands doing this style. Hengen Tulet by...

When two conflicting ideals of black metal combine you get Lux Satanae. The raw satanic sacrifice that is presented by the werewolf and the goat.  The werewolf, Satanic Warmaster, being the typical Second Wave influenced black metal. The goat, the legendary Archgoat being the disgusting, fuck your nun in the ass and make her love it, deathy black metal. These are a couple of the finest black metal bands Finland has ever had to offer. The tracks on this split are not new....

So you think pure heavy metal is dead huh? Well pull your head out of your ass and fasten your seatbelts and listen to Straight Shooter by Speedtrap. Finland is more known for their extreme metal bands in genres of black and death metal in the vein of Impaled Nazarene and Archgoat but Speedtrap is a different kind of animal. The raw talent displayed on this album is quite the fascination. A band like Speedtrap in this era of music is insane. Speedtrap is a lightning fast...

  Very rarely does Finland disappoint with black metal, and Sacrificium Carmen is true to that statement. Ikuisen tulen kammiossa is an amazing feature of raw and melodic elements that are not found in any scene or movement. This is a band that is true to the nature of black metal and evolving with it and not letting black metal evolve over it. Since the second wave of black metal the originality of many bands declined during the war of the cultest and blackest....

I’d like my Thrash with a side of Bathory influence and a tinge of crust please,hold the bullshit. Oh wow the order came out perfect! I received an early promo of this album set to release on August 21st, 2015, I will be the first to buy this on the release date. The “Devil Metal Punks” Bonehunter have made a totally kick ass debut album with Evil Triumphs Again. There are very few things I enjoy in this dismal world, but you give me some good Crossover...
