WatainLawless Darkness (Season of Mist)
Swedish black magic threesome Erik Danielsson, Pelle Forsberg, and Håkan Jonsson kill the moonlight and its entire family on fourth full-length Lawless Darkness. Storm-bringer "Death's Cold Dark" and Celtic Frost's V-8 trample as detailed by guitarist Forsberg's nose cone kills on screaming eagle "Malfeitor," with its elegiac fade into the aggro swarm of succeeding flayer "Reaping Death," build to a royal shitstorm ("Four Thrones"), apocalyptic plagues ("Total Funeral"), and black metal bulimia ("Kiss of Death").
