Nibelungenlied is the second (and far superior in my opinion) album by uberkult Krautrock underdogs German Oak. As the title suggests, inspiration came from the epic German poem The Song of the Nibelungs, the same poem that had inspired Richard Wagner's Ring Cycle one hundred years before. This recording is incredibly lo-fi, not unlike much of the black metal featured here on The Hearse. Recorded in 1976, Nibelungenlied may be the first kult black metal record ever made, sonically speaking. Primitive necro death psych to be listened to in the dark.
