Urfaust / Circle of Ouroborus - Auerauege Raa Verduistering

2006; 10 tracks

Urfaust and Circle of Ouroborus are both truly individual and fantastic acts on the black metal scene. Urfaust is a Dutch black metal band that tends toward the avant-garde at times, providing full symphonic tracks in their releases and playing a unique style of black metal.. that with almost entirely clean vocals. Circle of Ouroborus is a Finnish black metal band that reminds me a lot of Nuit Noire, although they are very different, as they are heavily influenced by the post-punk band Joy Division. Their sound is also highly individual and unique - clean vocals, lo-fi production, and sometimes completely acoustic tracks. It is gorgeous, though, and this split provides the best of both worlds.

1. Verächtung Wird Einen Messertragenden Schatten
