NAPALM RECORDS 2014
It is the first time I have heard about NACHTBLUT although they are into life since 2005. Shame on me! In order to go immediately to the chase I’ m quite surprised by their quality and their creativity. Shame on me again.
The band' s location is Osnabrück, Lower Saxony, and “Chimonas” (probably translated to winter from the greek word χειμώνας) is the 4th full length album of the band. Once more I have to admit that I’m totally impressed after the second hearing of “Chimonas”.
Nachtblut with their musical hints serving us wintry utopian magical images. Truly “Chimonas” is a majestic album keeping us in a warm mood into the winter frost.
The album includes 10 flawless strong tracks showing a great deal of variety. I can describe their music as majestic, symphonic, epic black metal without losing the opportunity flirting with such bands as Rammstein or Crematory.
Other bands with which I could liken them are Italian Graveworm , Ensiferum , Agathodaimon (particularly for the heavy parts). Although the identity and personality of the band dominates over each influence.
I do not know how good sound their previous album (im gonna looking for them after finishing with that) but “Chimonas” is a pompous dark anthem of melodic black metal! Τo go a little farther its a lily black embodies secret desires!
A Hot must have for all seasons!
