Nightbringer: Terra Damnata

Terra Damnata is the latest Season of Mist release for US black metal act Nightbringer, which once again sees the Colorado act exploding with a vengeance and delivering their brand of maniacal, evil, and symphonic venom for any fan of acts like Mayhem, Deathspell Omega, Emperor, and even possibly Strapping Young Lad. These guys aren't afraid to use speed as their main weapon, which you can plainly hear on the ferocious opening 1-2 punch of "As Wolves Amongst Ruins" and "Misrule", each featuring hellish vocals spewing over manic blasts, crushing riffs, and creepy synths. There are however some more mid-paced numbers, such as the orchestral "Midnight's Crown" and the pounding "Inheritor of a Dying World", but for the most part, expect huge swells of symphonic arrangements over traditional styled black metal, much of it slightly progressive & atmospheric, but always frightening and violent.

With multiple vocalists, you get a mix of evil rasps, screams, and more operatic spoken word passages, all working together to deliver the dark lyrical imagery. Though Terra Damnata isn't going to change the face of US black metal, it's a more than solid entry from a band who has been quite consistent from day one.
