Walpurgisnacht - _Moerasghesomp_
by: Jackie Smit (4 out of 5)
Grim and necro are very definitely the order of the day on Walpurgisnacht's maiden offering -- a rehearsal demo that the band claim will be a true revelation to old-school black metal fans. The influence of Mayhem, Darkthrone and early Satyricon is indeed strong on the cold, aggressive songs contained on this disc, but to their credit Walpurgisnacht manage to sound as relatively unique as one can reasonably expect of a band in this genre, despite the obvious rehearsal quality of the recording. Clearly a tremendous amount of talent is at work in this band -- some followers of the European black metal underground might even recognize drummer Marchosias from his work in Grimm, Zwartkkerij and Cirith Gorgor. While this doesn't quite top the ominous majesty of Benighted's last demo, you can comfortably tick off Walpurgisnacht as a name to keep an eye on in the future.
