'Mustan Auringon Riitti'
(Hammer Of Hate Records)
Finland never ceases to amaze me with it's never-ending sea of great bands whether it is the traditional, hateful black metal or more atmospheric blackened death, it is mostly always good. Well, you can now add NATTFOG to this ever growing long list of bands. NATTFOG is a duo creating - what else? - cold, grim and harsh black metal. The songs are fairly long for this style of music though ranging from 3 minutes up to 9 minutes, but the band members are good enough song-writers and musicians ; they can make the songs a little long but it never gets boring to my ears. Raw, primitive production and harsh mid-paced raw guitars, with some killer drumming along with some well-done sick, violent black metal shrieks. Fans of SARGEIST, HORNA etc. will love NATTFOG, so definitely give this a chance.
