Departure Chandelier - Antichrist Rise to Power (2019)Release ID: 11065
This cracking slab of historical black metal is, surprisingly, only just now seeing the light of day despite being recorded way back in 2010. I don't know why this would be, but it certainly isn't because of any lack of quality. It catalogues the fall and rise of Napoleon Bonaparte, a tale that undoubtedly has a kind of affinity with black metal sensibilities. The music is both ascerbic and melodic, dealing up just over half an hour of synth-enhanced imperialistic savagery and majesty.
