Khar Sulde - The Black Banners of Cosmic War



Now here's a fascinating offering. Khar Sulde have opted to release their debut LP on the truly great Crown and Throne Ltd. This lo fi black metal masterwork is a blast to listen too - a masterful offering that will capture the listeners imagination and which tends to consistently push above and beyond. though yes this recording is very lo fi - unexpectedly so in fact, The Black Banners Of Cosmic War is also kind of a fuckin' blast and it's far too much fun to spend some time with all that the band have conjured up here. this is a masterful record and one that plays nicely into the grandest tropes of black metal fury. What more could a guy expect from the madness? 

Much of what Khar Sulde do sticks to the standard tropes of second wave black metal. the influence of the old gods, bands like Mayhem, Darkthone and even Immortal is very clear here. The goal was obviously not to create something grandiose and genre changing. Instead we are left with some straightforward blasting black metal. The shrieked vocals are twisted, the guitar riffs laser fast and the drums unrelenting. If you like old school black metal then this is going to be for you. If you're looking for something a bit more nuanced then you will be no doubt alienated by what Khar Sulde have done here. It's really that simple. 

This is an offering that delves into the depth of humanities atrocities. The Black Banners Of Cosmic War forces you to choke on the bitter pill of unreality and realize that only death is real. As they navigate twisted worlds, memories of humanities darkest moments, Khar Sulde explore unholy depth to unholy depth. As they plumb the torment of humanity they become ever more fascinating. IT is difficult to draw yourself away from this depracity and the more time you spend embracing the kvlt, the more clear it becomes. This is true black metal madness. 


Pre-order the record!

  1. A GREAT SPELL CASTER (DR. EMU) THAT HELP ME BRING BACK MY EX GIRLFRIEND.
    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.
