ETERNUM – VEIL OF ANCIENT DARKNESS LP (Dark Adversary Productions / Darker Than Black Records)

Eternum - Veil Of Ancient DarknessThis is pretty much the only record I’ve been listening to for the past week or so. There are two reasons for this sad lack of variety in my life of late: I haven’t had much time (or energy) to check out anything else; and ‘Veil Of Ancient Darkness’ just happens to be utterly fantastic.

One word springs to mind when I consider this stunning debut album: majestic. Forty minutes of sublime, mid-paced, atmospheric Black Metal with the two members’ day job in Drowning The Light more than evident. If you fancy hearing some supreme underground blackness with just the right quantities of melody, grimness and emotion (and why wouldn’t you?), then check this one out.

Impossible to go wrong here and there’s simply fuck all else to say. Magnificent.
