Blut Aus Nord- Epitome II from the album 777 Sect(s)
Hailing from France, Blut Aus Nord is a mysterious black metal band that has been around for for nearly two decades now. A band that I personally treasure, they are unique in their unorthodox industrial approach to the genre, and also with their arcane secrecy. Not a tremendous amount of information is known about the band, not even their lyrics, save for one album.
Currently in the midst of recording a trilogy, Blut Aus Nord’s musical output is largely composed of albums that are portions of an overall more epic scheme. The first two albums were released this year and I am excitedly anticipating the final piece of the three-part recording.
The track that I have been spinning the most lately is the second track off of the first album of the set. The vocals are very limited in this song, allowing for the monolithic atmosphere to breathe without interruption, and the ending riff is so epic and despondent you may slip into a comotose eternal sleep, dreaming nightmares of hellish rituals 0f alchemy and the occult. More than likely you’ll just agree with me that it’s pretty sweet sounding. So, enjoy the track, this band needs recognition, despite their underground legacy.
P.S. Here’s the trailer for the new album, which, by the way, pwns.
