HORNA - Sotahuuto CD *
Sotahuuto is not an ordinary album. The title is Finnish for "War Cry", and that is fairly appropriate given the nature of this L.P. As the liner notes state, the material was written in the spring of 2004, in tribute of Bathory. While there are those who will unavoidably find this unworthy of their attention among the works of Horna, they might end up missing something essential. Because this paints a picture of the origins of black metal, and it paints it with the blood of Christ. Go and hear this, and raise a mug of mead to Quorthon's memory while you're at it.
