Hell Eternal

Rated 3.85/5 (76.92%) (13 Votes)

Whoa... One word can describe this album: SPEED.  This Swedish black metal band doesn't do into the atmospheric-type black metal like Carpathian Forest or ...And Oceans, opting instead for raging speed and brutality from beginning to end.  Do not expect to be able to catch your breath during the 40 minutes of this album, it never stops.  But it's not only the music, as each song as very well-developed lyrically, with much more text than the average song in just about any style, and no need to tell you that they are not recounting Disney tales.  What more can I say... It just doesn't stop - those guys are machines!

This is a good album to get if you are into extremely fast music, but if you're more into Carpathian Forest-type metal, you might want to check some sound samples before buying.
