Ancient Kings and the Pain of Mountains

Here we have a brilliant cassette titled Tuskanvuorten Valtaistuin by Finnish Black Metal band, Muinainen Rhutinas. The band doesn't dabble in any kind of experimentation or strange instrumentation, Muinainen Rhutinas offer up well-played, well-written Black Metal, and nothing else. Fanatastic riffs and atmosphere. Highly recommended.

Thanks again. I've never even heard of this, but I'm listening to the first track now and I can tell I'm going to like it.

Those barren trees just reek of isolation and cold. Thanks so much for this one.

This is a solid entry in the Hearse's Black Metal cache. It sounds great with the insane windstorms we've been having down here in LA.

The track "Loppuni" is worth the time to check this out alone. Thank you as always for sharing.

Great stuff. I'm in the holiday mood now for sure. Well-done basic black metal is one of life's simple pleasures.
@Nickabe57: Skagos is terrific, though in a rather different vein from this.

@ nickabe57: One member of Skagos is in Iskra, but he only recently joined Iskra, and he is not the primary composer of Skagos material. look them up on myspace and be blown away.

Gracias Yazata...also saw they are on the same label that shares their address with the old woodsmoke label.

Yazata said...

true, but the two labels are not connected, aside from using the same address. Eternal Warfare has been around for some time, overlapping considerably with the period of Woodsmoke's reign.

This was released by Tour de Garde out of Montreal, the label is run by Akitsa member, OT.
