Empire of Hate vs. Morthond

Empire of Hate from Australia square off with the American Morthond in a nocturnal battle for kvlt supremacy. Empire of Hate kick things off with their putrid, lo-fi hum. They are everything we want in a Black Metal band, mysterious, distant, and covered in a filthy aural soil. Morthond will have to be pretty great to top this. Morthond is in fact great, melancholy, Black Metal, but the thin recording is almost too low. Empire of Hate edges out the competition, but both bands make for a great split. Oh and that cover...

I love that cover. It looks like something I would draw back when I was a kid.
