Crimson Moonlight - _Eternal Emperor_
(Independent, 1999)
by: Alex Cantwell (7 out of 10)
_Eternal Emperor_ is the debut disc from Sweden's newest creators of frozen black metal, Crimson Moonlight. Too bad there are only five tracks (two of which are keyboard instrumentals), because we only get a slight glimpse of what this band is and is not capable of. The production is quite good for an indy release, but it is a bit below par in the drum sound -- not that they sound bad, but it is obvious that there was not a lot of money spent on trying to make everything sound perfectly slick. The three tracks that are not instrumentals feature a lot of keyboard work within them, but are impressively brutal at the same time. Heavy, double bass driven black metal is the music of choice for Crimson Moonlight, and they are off to a good start. Also, as a humorous aside, I have to tell you that one of the group members' name is Pilgrim. I said "member".
