Numen – Iluntasuna besarkatu nuen betiko

numen – iluntasuna besarkatu nuen betiko

Numen have been around for a long time, hell, since 1997 and this is my very first experience with them. The Encyclopedia Metallum has them listed as a Black/Folk Metal band while their very own Facebook page proclaims them to be Basque Cult Black Metal. Which one is true? I am not really sure, for what I hear while listening to this album is something similar to bands like 1349 or Marduk but with more embellishment and more intricate riffs. That is not to say that the genre tags above are wrong, it is just what I, one lone reviewer, hear when I listen to “Iluntasuna besarkatu nuen betiko.”

With all that aside, this is a really good album. One that holds my interest to a point where I forget what I am doing and just zone in. It goes really well with wandering the street or driving a car but when trying to listen for review purposes I just get utterly lost. I lose all interest in listening in a mindset of review writer and just flat out enjoy the shit out of it. There really isn’t much more to say about it. Just go get it and find out for yourself, it is really damn good and worth everyone searching it out.  (Ben Schultz)
