Mastiphal: For a Glory of All Evil Spirits 12" (new)

Nuclear War Now!


In somewhat of a departure from the earliest blueprint that had been drawn for the subgenre of black metal by its originators, several European bands of the early 1990s began to carve their own niche with the addition of new elements to augment the original recipe. The inclusion of keyboards in particular became a hallmark characteristic of this updated version of black metal, as perhaps most famously reflected in the work of Norwegian bands such as Emperor. This popularly-recognized connection to Norway notwithstanding, the early use of keyboards in black metal also extended to more isolated European countries such as Poland, where the infamous Graveland emerged during the first half of the nineties.
