A little bitch of an album here from Luxemburg two-piece Black Candle, complete with some satanic-looking artwork and a production to match. This was their debut from 1999 and it still slays now, sounding every bit as evil as the new stuff from Horna and Arckanum. It's Black Metal in the same horrid style as the aforementioned blasters, with a fevered touch of old Darkthrone in there as well. There's nothing here you haven't heard a gazillion times before, but it's done well, and Black Candle at least deserve some credit, because Nightfire is the kind of album that reignites the flame of your disgusting love for this genre, and with songs like "Millennium Battle" and "Cosmic Icewinds", you can't go wrong, really.

Very short at just under half an hour, Nightfire isn't a perfect BM album by any means, but it's a casual lesson in evil (with some sinful vocal enchantments) that is rather perfect for an ephemeral dark mood.
