De Expugnatione Elfmuth

Rated 4.33/5 (86.67%) (6 Votes)

This is keyboard-infested symphonic Black Metal that reminds me of Bal-Sagoth in places, only without Bal-Sagoth's lunatic energy. Nazgul play fast, sometimes folk-inflected BM with a pretty good guitar tone and some very nice melodies. The vocals are sometimes annoying, and all the lyrics are in Latin, so you won't get a word of it. Overall this is pretty solid, and you will enjoy it fine while it's on if you like similar bands like Fallen Empire or Keep Of Kalessin. This is competent, but not really any better than that. Pretty good.
