NINE COVENS
ON THE COMING OF DARKNESS
CANDLELIGHT

Comprised of UK musicians who opt to stay anonymous, the quartet known as Nine Covens venture into the murky underworld of black metal malaise as heard on the nine-track ON THE COMING OF DARKNESS. Breaking the album up into four parts while sticking to a primitive style with sprinklings of thrash and death metal peppered in, this secretive squad who chooses to stay unknown to allow their music to do the talking showcases a direct and visceral approach cloaked in vintage production values and compositional structures from the seminal days of the black metal movement. Creating a musical realm where raspy vocal shrieks, surprisingly warm guitar tones, and oodles of tremolo picking and blast beats are staples, Nine Covens does an ample job of replicating callous emotions and cold-hearted melodies from the early works of the pioneers of the genre.
