Three years after its predecessor, the fifth album by Galizian duo, Xerión, is out!
25 years into their existence, one of the forerunners of Dutch Black Metal, Sammath, will have their debut live performance outside of The Netherlands or Germany.
There is nothing outstanding on this EP. It just fits perfectly on the “average pile” which is growing by the minute threatening to overshadow Mount Everest.
These 36 minutes stand as another proof of a thriving scene which has often been overlooked by the connoisseurs. Perhaps it is about time we all turn our ears towards the Netherlands. A couple of real hidden gems are waiting to be discovered. Meslamtaea is certainly one of them.
This is some sort of a re-release of the first two demos by this Galizian horde.
I can understand minimalism, primitive Black Metal tendencies, replaying the same old riffs, song structures, but I will never understand the need to make the song containing one or two riffs last for 10 minutes.
