Katharsis- Kross Fyre
Hailing from Germany and being signed to Norma Evangelium Diaboli are two extremely fortunate aspects to have as a black metal band. Both are signs of quality, Norma Evangelium Diaboli being Deathspell Omega’s personal record label that only signs the most devout and original satanic black metal bands and Germany being a land of great metal pride as well as the origin of a style of thrash that would be indispensible to the black metal sound.
Katharsis is just awesome in everyway, they may not be as dignified sounding as present day Deathspell or as organized and efficient as Mgla, but they most definitely cover the raw thrash end theistic satanic black metal, giving acts such as Aura Noir a run for their money. Make no mistake, this band is far more pure black metal above all else, and they do love bullet belts which I approve of.
