This is a review of a compilation from Forbidden Records which was released in 2012 and we will review the songs one by one.
Goatcraft brings us "Goats Will Riot" a song that is all done on synths and has a very dark and evil sound to it.
Next up is Shadows In The Crypt with "Embracing The Forbidden Arts" a very dark, raw and primitive sounding occult black metal song with a great amount of high pitched screams and some clean singing as well as some thrash influences being thrown into the riffing.
Next up is Plutonian Shore with "A Thousand Eyes" a very dark and atmospheric sounding occult black metal song with some evil sounding keyboards.
Next up is A Transylvanian Funeral with "Light Cast Out" another raw and primitive song from this occult black metal band.
Next up is Darkest Grove with "Alone Eternal Part II" a very dark and atmospheric black metal song that starts off with a classical guitar intro and then turns into a slow and melodic song and then it speeds up to a more raw and primitive black metal sound.
Next up is Hypnos with "Inverted" a song that is more in the death/thrash vein with some blasphemous lyrics as well as some black metal influences being thrown into the riffing.
Next up is Interstice with "The Wolf" a very dark, raw and primitive sounding black metal song that has more of the classic sound to it.
Closing the compilation is Oakmoon with "Under Blackened Skies We Gather' a very fast raw and primitive sounding black metal song.
In conclusion this is a very great sounding compilation and I would recommend this to all fans of black metal. RECOMMENDED.
