Norway’s metal scene in the early 90’s: During a time when other fellow countrymen and extreme metal fans were occupied with burning down churches and other criminal activities, even including murders, a small group of people with a totally different view of life’s destiny and purpose stood up. Even inspired by the musical aspect of their “brothers”, the so-called black metal movement, these guys were ahead of their time. Hated by the scene and misunderstood by the church, Antestor rehearsed in the underground surrounded by traditional Norwegian
landscape to create a unique and atmospheric sound. Call it black metal if you like. Or “sorrow metal” which is perhaps a better description to the musical as well as the lyrical feeling on “Kongsblod”. Recorded in 1997 and distributed as a promo to metal labels around the world which led to some contact with a certain black metal label, that ended up changing lots of vital elements from the original package as it was intended by the group themselves. BUT here it is 20 years after; this masterpiece of soulful folk black metal re-released with extensive liner notes, original cover picture, logo, and uncensored lyrics.
From the deep forests of Smaland Sweden, comes this melodic death metal duo, perhaps more known from the band Pantokrator. All lyrics are in Swedish, but translations are featured in the booklet. The artwork for the album is beautiful, in-depth and greatly compliments the environment and passion of this album. FINALLY, a Christian band brings the hammer with a more darkened sound, primative, and unapologetic from the northern landscapes. Mysteriously haunting, brutal, intentional, methodical with every note, beat, and instrumention that leaps out at you. Creative and expressive! This is probably better than ANY Pantokrator album produced and sounds more like the bands that are being produced on Eurpoean secular labels to the likes of Krater, Out of the Void, Bhleg, and more. A tremendous album for a new era!
