Stige – Where Darkness Prevails [Demo]

No Image Available

The beauty environment and surroundings of Sesto Fiorentino (Firenze), Tuscany isn’t the most perfect inspiration for Black Metal, yet that doesn’t stop Warrior (also in Sonnenrad) and Edo from trying. This is the first demo of these Italians which is inspired by the second wave of Nordic Black Metal. So you get easily to the usual suspects, when you hear the opening track “Crushing the Gods”, you will hear the influence of Darkthrone very well. On “Burn the Branches of Christ” you will hear a more Pagan approach with more melody in the riffs. An early Satyricon or Hades Almighty inspiration going on that one, but the melody became more Arckanum on the title track. I applaud the influences, yet the execution isn’t all that. Maybe the next demo will crush me. (Ricardo)
