Tvangeste - Damnation of Regiomontum

Artist: Tvangeste
Album: Damnation of Regiomontum
Genre: Symphonic Black Metal
Origin: Russia
Year: 2000

The word 'epic' gets thrown around way too much when it comes to metal music. But if I was ever going to use it to describe black metal, it would be for the first track of this album, "From Nameless Oracle". The song is 13 minutes of feeling like you're taking part in some ancient mythology. The drums are programmed on this album, not the real deal, but they are programmed rather well and it never feels out of place with the music.

Hello there!big fun of your blog from greece..i'd like to ask if it would be easy to include in your commend for each band its political ideology(if you are aware of it) like you did with panopticon or nokturnal mortum..i'm writting these becouse i was discourged of this band here becouse of the nazi symbol(swastiga)on the front cover..thank you...

Sure, I'll try to do that! I wish all good music was Leftist, or at least not insane like these fellows. But sometimes I just have to ignore the message (which is easy enough with black metal).
