GORGOROTH - Pentagram CD
Regular price €12.99
Using words like essential or mandatory just don’t seem to cover what is being missed out on by everyone who hasn’t discovered this band, or the style and scene they represent. It’s not merely one of the best albums of the Norwegian 2nd wave, but one of the best of any album to ever carry the label of black metal. It’s a lasting testament to the violent yet ingenious revolution that went on during the year 1994, a year remembered by many as one of the most desolate for the metal world. To this day I can’t really pick a favorite between this, “In The Nightside Eclipse” and “Vikingligr Veldi”. I guess the 3 of them are sort of like 3 immortal Norse berserkers, fighting each other wildly until the closing third Fimbulvetr of Ragnarok. The difference is that you get this one in less than 30 minutes, with fewer tracks and instruments.
