Lugubrum - de vette cuecken
Here we have Lugubrum from Belgium and this is my favorite release by them, that's not saying all of their releases aren't good this is just the one come back to most often. It's nice and raw like their previous albums in a Darkthrone kind of fashion but on this album they seemed to step it up a notch and took what they were doing before and added a sludgy quality to the riffing. Kind of like if Black Sabbath decided to put out a raw black metal album but still that comparison doesn't do this justice. Another little extra they throw on this album is their use of a saxophone on several songs and in addition to that a banjo and a mandolin. Alot of typical black metal fans find this band a bit too bizzare for their liking but that's truly their loss if they aren't willing to open their mind to something a little different.
