NINKHARSAG - The Dread March Of Solemn Gods CD
NINKHARSAG was formed in 2009 with one desire; to create cold, majestic Black Metal in the classic, unspoiled style of old. Drawing inspiration from masters such as MERCYFUL FATE & BATHORY to the Scandinavian scions of the 90’s like EMPEROR, DISSECTION & MAYHEM, NINKHARSAG rapidly established themselves in the UK as a unique and powerful force on the Black Metal scene and quickly set to work on their first full length album. Fast forward to 2021, now signed with Vendetta Records, and the band presents their newest album here, titled “The Dread March of Solemn Gods.”
Taking cues from some of the originators of the genre like Mayhem and Emperor but benefiting from the melodic tendencies of the likes of Naglfar or even Rotting Christ. There is a blistering, white hot (or maybe cold?) ambience to many of the songs, as well as the sure-footedness that comes from a band who have honed their craft.
