From ancient sands Gevurah arise to unleash this dark star of fire and corrupted faith. One can see how deeply spiritual this release is with a look at the mixed language lyrics, which combined with the stunning art of Denis Forkas show a remarkable conceptual unity. The sound is more comparable to European "orthodox" acts than their fellow Canadian compatriots, with a dense backdrop of riffs providing a platform for the bellowing vocals. Sure to be one of the black metal highlights of 2016.
Favorite track: Dies Irae - Lacrimosa.
