STRIBORG
NEFARIA/ A TRAGIC JOURNEY TOWARDS THE LIGHT
SOUTHERN LORD

Australian one-man wrecking crew Striborg returns with an assaultive offering in the form of NEFARIA/ A TRAGIC JOURNEY TOWARDS THE LIGHT, a 16-track disc brimming over with black metal minimalism. No big budget studio tricks and no smoke and mirrors here, folks, just some old school, no nonsense bare bones black metal that fans of everything Norwegian and evil are sure to fawn over. While the second half of this disc is discernibly more lo-fi (it was released 12 years prior after all), the overall effect of the entire collection resonates on cuts such as the bleak "Bleeding Black Tears of Hate" and the eerie acoustic passage "Drowned in Black Beauty", exuding the hopeless abandon it strives to project.
