Tsjuder – Antiliv (2015, Season Of Mist)
In this era of saturated genre albums, especially a genre where evolution or departure from the original guidelines is often quickly discarded. In the black metal genre, many good records are released each year. However, a few are or are potentially labeled as great.
With Antiliv, black metal is still true to its roots while some elements of other metal genres are gently incorporated. The quality of the production is admirable and proves that bm doesn’t need lo-fi shitty sound to be kvlt (cult) or trve (true). The record works great as an ensemble and runs at a nice length.
In fact, this is one of the best classic black metal album I’ve heard this year.
