Label: Primitive Reaction – PR051
Released: December 7th, 2018
Style: Black Metal
Finnish black metal duo Disciples of the Void wanted to create black metal the way it was back in the mid ’90s. “The idea behind this project is not to come up with something new and different, but instead perform BM the way it was at first when we discovered it and the way it was at its best,” says the band. Disciples of the Void whip forth a stargazing fury that literally sounds frozen in the mid ’90s, before the scene started worrying whether a black metal band was too “symphonic” and such things. Indeed does Disciples of the Void exhibit something of a symphonic aspect, but again one that is rooted in the rich traditionalism of second-wave black metal.
