The Lost Tapes

Rated 3.75/5 (75%) (4 Votes)

Alright. Let's face it, Mütiilation, the most enduring (one-man) band of Les légions noires (the Black Legions) is history. So, this is not a new album but really a rerecording of old songs done back in 2009–2010. Like the early material, it's raw, minimalistic as fuck and is anything but memorable. It's about as raw-to-the-bones as it gets, and most people will hate this stuff. But if you're into the very raw, devoid of melody, tormented, basic black metal that Mütiilation was known for on earlier recordings, then this is bound to get your rocks off. It's not pretty, it's straight out of hell, and that just how it was done at the time.
