Myrddraal - _Blood on the Mountain_
(Decius Productions, 2001)
by: Adrian Bromley (8 out of 10)
From "Down Under" comes the thunder of black metal horde Myrddraal, a stunning and totally powerful black metal act that showcases dynamics and raw aggression. The band's disc _Blood on the Mountain_ is highlighted by some of the most insane drumming (real raw) and intense yet passionate screams I have heard in some time. And while the production is miles away from the clean/slick work of Dimmu Borgir's _Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia_, it still delivers the same aggression of said record. Bathing in total anti-Christian themes, Myrddraal sets the tone with strong lyrics and themes, powerful songwriting (i.e. "Daughter of the Night", "What Once Was" and the title track) that is backed up by an even more impressive work of musicianship. There are hundreds of bands scattered around the globe with the same determination as Myrddraal, but some go unnoticed. I'm just glad I stumbled upon these guys 'cause now my music collection is one CD stronger and the campaign against Christianity has grown a bit more.
