Black Angels

Oh fuck yeah!!! Can you wrap your head around the rickety youthful Satanic steel of Norway's Black Angels? This roughshod demo is about to steal your heart with its naive approach to just good old fashion Heavy Metal. Also, interestingly enough, the lyrics mention church burning about eight years before Varg arrived at the door of Fantoft with a can of bensen and a book of fyrstikken. And that isn't the only nefarious deed of these teen terrors, over the five minute running time of their signature anthem and mission statement, "Black Angels", the guys also drink blood, kill priests, rape nuns and still make it home in time to have lutefisk with Moder and Far. You'd think that would be enough, but the enthusiastic rosy-cheeked pups slog through another five spirited but clumsy steel sonatas. Kind of a long demo, but I am not complaining. I will never tire of this. We are all Black Angels.

Wow! Primitive doesn't even scratch the surface, but I could get addicted to this very easily. The solo in "Get Off My Back" is so fukkn awkward, and "Twilight Of The Gods" sounds like a high school talent show band covering Priest. This is amazing.

I can really relate to this, as I too have been a wic-tim of love.

Wow the sheer awkwardness and sincerity of these little hessians was enough to make me fall in love... but the catchy (if stumbling) riffs and solos gave me a straight up boner.

Captcha: umprest (I think that's how they would say impressed in Norway)

It is 90+ degrees in chicago right now, and humid as shit, but I will still be riding my bicycle 4 miles to work... listening to this... in leather pants and spiked gauntlets. Fucking brilliant.

yeah this reminds me of the mid eighties,we would have warehouse parties,and all the bands that practiced,and their extended friends,crew,family,would party down and travel ,storage unit,to unit,and hear each band do their set.totally sounds like one of those bands,back when punk turned hardcore,and metal turned thrash,thanks G O D
