Mistigo Varggoth Darkestra
The Key to the Gates of Apocalypses
(The End Records)
Enslain Magazine Issue #6
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.
