Heavily inspired by the early Norwegian Black Metal movement, Germany's unholy trinity, Fallen Tyrant, does a great job adopting grim northern darkness on their debut album, No World to Win, a Life to Lose.

Fallen Tyrant have done their homework well and evokes an ominous and atmospheric Black Metal sound akin to stripped down version of Emperor's first two albums, In the Nightside Eclipse and Anthems to the Welkin at Dusk. Not only have they managed to get those cold atmospheres indelibly wrapped around their songs but their songwriting touches on some of Black Metal's deepest aesthetics throughout this 8-track opus. The crispy and raw production also captures the essence of the early Norwegian Black Metal scene, making it clear these guys are totally dedicated to the stuff they do.

Black Metal is such a beautiful and temping thing and when you have a firm vision of how it should be done, it can send cold shivers down a listener's spine. Fallen Tyrant brings true joy and pleasure with No World to Win, a Life to Lose. Good job, guys.
