mourner Strong, powerful death metal with hints of black metal and great dark atmosphere. Pettersson and Lee team up just perfectly. Right now it's one of my favourite death metal releases ever.

Metallurgical Fire After Heads for the Dead I’ll probably pick up anything that Jonny Pettersson does. This album is another solid and heavy release with atmosphere and depth. The vocals are of course top notch as one would expect from Lee. Favorite track: Upon The Sound Of Her Wings.

about

Original DEATH and MASSACRE vocalist Kam Lee gives one of his best performances here. NATTRAVNEN is about the legend of Night Raven, for which Kam has written an actual story, in addition to complete lyrics of the album. Jonny Petterson of HEADS FOR THE DEAD, WOMBBATH has created sublime music that is death metal laced with black metal and atmospheric doom elements, while being devastatingly heavy in his trademark style. Together the duo has concocted not only one of the most interesting death metal albums of this era, but also one with rare lasting value and superior musicianship. This is essentially dark death metal with better expression and scope. Juanjo Castellano of REVEL IN FLESH and CARNATION fame is responsible for the magnificent album artwork and even the label owner Kunal Choksi chipped in with the band logo. All in all, this is one of the most important releases to come out which sets new standards for the style altogether.
