GRUDOM – FJØLKYNGI LP (Mysticism Productions)

Grudom – FjølkyngiGrudom is a very obscure and low-key (even by Black Metal standards) entity from Denmark and I’m not sure whether ‘Fjølkyngi’ is their / his / its first or 20th album or somewhere in between. But who gives a fuck either way? The record contains 40-odd minutes of weird, demented, psychotic, off-the-wall Black Metal mania, all of which is transfused at a hypnotic slow-to-mid pace.

It’s creepy, strange, eclectic and thoroughly enjoyable. There’s so much shit floating about masquerading as Black Metal these days that it is almost a shock to hear something so genuinely disturbing, underground and unique. Great stuff.
