Review


Another stranger brought home by Drakkar Productions. This time, it's a more extreme act that goes by the name of Nidsang. This Swedish band is said to be similar to old Watain without the Dissection influence.

What I can say about The Mark of Death is that this type of Black Metal is furious, blasphemous and fast - and sometimes very fast, such as in the title track's intro. Their extreme art is kind of melodic, especially in the frequent moderate passages. That's when the guitar work gets crunchier, the bass fatter and wicked - the most interesting parts, as far as I'm concerned. A few electronics and keyboards scattered here and there, some voice samplings and choir come in handy when time is up for a bit of a melodic touch and ambiance.

Being no fan of the overuse of blast beats, I can't say I was impressed or thrilled by this release although the mid/crushing moments brought a pleasant break in the listening experience. As for the best tracks to be heard, I can recommend: the title track, Glorious Destruction and Whiter and Die.
