    Agreed. I find that I can actually get into their latest.

    But honestly, they need better covers. Desperately.

    ^ You have no idea how many times I've mentioned that album on this forum over the years and for some insane reason it just hasn't got the notice it deserves.

    Looking past the ridiculous cover ( :lol: ), I'm sure some who frequent this thread might turn around and say "well, it's shit", but I really think this is quite a special and far too overlooked record. Not to mention it's on THR who imo are consistent with their high quality releases.

    It breaks no ground, doesn't need to either. Nevertheless, it's an excellent piece of work, Hakan knows his shit and did well to sign Hekel to his label.

    Fans of Burzum, Drudkh, Strid will love it ... basically, simple chords/arpeggios, with raw production and glass swallowing vocals. It's fucking outstanding.

    Hekel has another album in the works, possible release this year.

    I'll only listen to that if the album title translates to "The Deathfart." Otherwise I can't muster up the curiosity.

    Hate Forest is great. Battlefields and Purity are my favs, sucks that they ended though.

    The new Stormcrow samples are sounding great.

    No one ever mentions Sorrow. Great sound on that album with the croaky bass the whole time. I also liked that they moved away from the overlong songs on that one too. Battlefields is great, of course.

    Have you seen the live video? Intense.

    I like Purity over Sorrow but oddly enough Sorrow is the only HF album I own (though I do have a shirt).

    And yeah those live videos are great.

    Btw isn't new Blood of Kingu gonna come out some time?

    One of the first black metal records I owned, actually.

    Been listening to alot of swedish melodic black metal lately. Keeping in mind that Dawn/Sacramentum/Dissection are so highly regarded by some here I think it's kinda weird that nobody seems to even care at all about Cardinal Sin, Noctes, Algaion, Vinterland, Midvinter, Swordmaster, The Darksend, etc.

    I'm a fan of Vinterland. And I know the bassist of Midvinter. He's a friend of a friend, his "Christian name" is Curtis. He's been to one of our shows. Awesome guy.

    Unanimated could fit that group of bands, right?

    Their brand new one "In the Light of Darkness" sounds great, I'm enjoying it.

    It sounds kind of indistinct, imo. A lot like Watain/Dissection sorta stuff (melodic-ish death/black). Their first two were better.

    Yes, definitely a lot of Dissection in their sound;

    I don't know their early albums, but both have been reissued and are available. If they are better than the new one, i'll check them out.
