TAARMA "Reflecting Hateful Energy (Tribute To Xasthur)" [MCD]
2010 - Black Metal from Afghanistan
Catalog Number: HOOF055MCD
As the subtitle "Tribute to XASTHUR" certainly suggests, this is a tribute from obscured, conflict-torn lands of the Middle East to one of the most outstanding US Black Metal acts so far. The Afghan / Pakistani notorious creator of darkness, TAARMA, has heaped lavish praise to XASTHUR for some years, and the ambition now comes to fruition. (Summer 2010)
This interesting import MCD in Jewel-Case *(LIMITED to only 500 made available worldwide from Sabbathid Records Japan) contains of 4 tracks of hateful and solitary suicidal Black Metal with harshly distorted guitars and vocals, which remind us of the desolate mood of XASTHUR's early era rather than the relatively sophisticated sound of recent years.* Note: All tracks are cover-versions of XASTHUR songs.
Recorded between 2006 and 2010, at Black Dungeon studio (Balochistan).
