Eisenkult - ...gedenken wir der Fisternis

What's truly exciting about the newest black metal has been its ability to distill a variety of fantastic elements into something that forms a greater overall whole. There is a very real magic to what has been crafted with ...gedenken wir der Fisternis (Roughly translated: Let Us Remember The Darkness) Honestly the band has done exactly that with this album, they revisit the darkness and guide us through generations of black metal madness in order ot execute at a truly twisted and fascinating level.

Eisenkult have done a fantastic job on this record of crafting up a unique and mesmerizing soundscape. This is an album that seems to transcend so many of its peers simply by sheer force of will. Though the production at times suffers, as a general rule the band has found a way to craft something distinct and exciting. While it very much pulls from second wave black metal there are thrilling piano intros, acoustic passages and nods to a variety of genres. As a general rule it's the atmosphere that Eisenkult conjure up that really serves to make them so exciting and endlessly fascinating to me.

...gedenken wir der Fisternis is just another stellar example of what the German black metal scene is spewing out these days. While they may not be as intellectualized as some of their French co-conspirators, what they have done here is craft an album that mesmerizes and excites. It's a record that goes above and beyond the call of duty, reminding us that their label Purity Through Fire should be praised for their ability to consistently find exciting new bands making meaningful additions to the canon.

    Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when all hope was lost for me to unite with my ex-girlfriend that I love so much. I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day i heard about the DR. EMU and I emailed him and he replied to me so kindly and helped me get back my lovely relationship that was already gone for two months.
