• (Pre-Order) - NIGHTBRINGER - Hierophany of the Open Grave 2LP/CD
SEASON OF MISTS
Hierophany Of The Open Grave is the latest effort from the four-piece void of absolute darkness, Nightbringer, digging even deeper into classic soil more so than their previous Apocalypse Sun from 2010. I never thought we’d see the day when the blackest of the black in the US is located in the highly unlikely town of Green Mountain Falls, Colorado, but this bunch is no joke. It’s clearly understandable why they were so quick to complete and unleash their debut for the freshly-formed Season Of Mist imprint, Underground Activists, because not only is this album black as soot, the songwriting it contains is the best the band has penned to date. While they sound like almost no other American black metal project, there’s enough distance between them and their European counterparts to give them a uniquely hellish sound that is certainly not meant for those with tender sensibilities.
