Nargaroth – Rasluka Part II

Kanwulf seems to be a polarizing figure to black metal fans. I enjoy most of his work, but some of it is pretty lame (I'm especially thinking of the last few albums), but this Rasluka ep (curiously the II before the I) is his meisterpiece. The guitar tone is brilliant in the red, crumbling shards of glass raining down and shredding flesh. The riffs are everything that is depressive and melancholic and are brought home with a bullet thanks to that aggressive guitar tone. Includes a weird homage to the late great Bon Scott (Kanwulfie is all about paying homage to his heroes ie Black Metal ist Krieg) avant-garde it hoits.
