Mistigo Varggoth Darkestra

The Key to the Gates of Apocalypses (The End Records)
Enslain Magazine Issue #6
Order Issue #6!  This review included. This apocalyptic release is the sole artistry of Kniaz Varggoth, also of Nokturnal Mortum. Here he expresses his more experimental side, in this never ending 72 minute song. I honestly don't see why this song isn't separated into a few tracks, as there are definite ends and beginnings that introduce new sounds and structures, but I wouldn't consider this to be a problem. The production and guitar sounds are really raw, displaying a dark and angry feel. There are some really interesting sounds and riffs throughout this disk, but many get repeated a bit much: making this album best as background music. The album has a considerably nightmarish quality, which will appeal to many of us nether creatures. -- Lady Enslain
