Night On Brocken

Brocken Moon is a German Black Metal band that showed much promise through a handful of tape releases and then kind of lost me with the full length Das Märchen vom Schnee Perhaps Humanhater, the sole member of Brocken Moon, had effectively ran out of ideas at this point. However, this tape called Schattenlicht des Mondes showcases the band's earliest recording and it is genius. Cold and reflective genius from atop Northern Germany's highest peak, a lonely mountain where witches and warlocks meet to plot nefarious deeds and record demos.

I couldn't tell which birds were real and which were this.

Kind of reminds me of that Dvnaèbkre tape you posted a while ago, except these are actually songs, unlike Dvnaèbkre which is just scary nature sounds.

Awesome. Being a whore for all things German this was an easy download. The payout was much greater than some German things I have run into (Steeltower, Viva...shudder). Excellent black vibe. Creepy and dark just they way I like my Black Metal. Love it.
