Acherontas: Amenti - Ψαλμοί Αίματος και Αστρικά Οράματα

W.T.C. Productions

Greek black metal outfit Acherontas, which is also the name of it's founder and leader, was formed out of the ashes of another black metal band called Stutthof. All of this took place in 2007 and since then the band has remained fairly active and fairly consistent. This new release is more of the same. That's good as the same old same old for this Greece act is mood altering black magic black metal. Adventurous and atmospheric to begin with the new album, which marks about number four for the group (there has been splits and what not as well), is enhanced by the presense of guest musicians and the seeming desire that this band has to push their own boundaries. Added up everything converges in one darkly lit place. With an overall arch that feels epic andcharacteristics that point towards ritualistic dark metal this one bound to draw new fans in to the cause.
