PESTLEGION - INTERVIEW



1. But I'm wrong the band was created in 2012 by Caladrius and B. von Doom, however in a short period of time a couple of other musicians joined to shape the final line-up of Pestlegion, how was this initial period of the band and why it considered necessary the incorporation of these new members? Why chose the name Pestlegion for the band since it makes reference?
 Actually we chose the name Pestlegion because we wanted to express our dedication to the second wave of Black Metal and yes, Pestlegion initially started as a two-piece by Caladrius and myself (B. Von Doom). Once we presented our Songs to drummer Tyyn, he was interested how they would sound as a real Band. It sounded great and Pestlegion became a real band. Our songwriting is based on two guitars and that’s why we recruited J. as second guitarist. He left the Band in 2016 and was replaced by Tenebriz, who fits perfectly for our needs. Our Line-up is stable since then. 

2. In April of 2014 you edit your first Ep "March to War" that contains four themes that already gave an idea of your influences and themes. We are before an EP that already shows that taste for the riffs worked and for everything that has to do with the black of the nineties. How was the process of composition of this Ep and what it meant for the group to see the repercussion achieved by it?
The EP was written by Caladrius and myself as we are Black Metal Enthusiasts since the early Nineties. We wanted to write and record music in the vein that influenced us the most. Bands like Marduk, Darkthrone, Impaled Nazarene and Mayhem (just to name a few) had a big impact on us and our musical preference. It’s good to see that people like what we do…. on the other hand if they didn’t: We would still sound the same way because it is the music we like. We do not follow trends and do what we want to do.   

3. "Dominus Profundum" was released at the beginning of last year, an album that shows the maturity reached by the band, but without a doubt does not lose sight of the previous "March to War". How has the composition and recording process of this work been and how has the sound of the band evolved with respect to your previous EP? 
Well, “Dominus Profundum” was written by us as a four-piece in the rehearsal room and you hear the influences of all the members while the “March to War” EP was recorded more or less in Homerecording by two of us as already mentioned above. Nevertheless we tried to maintain that nineties Spirit in our Songs and it seems like we succeeded.

4. How long has it taken you to have the new album ready and how is your way of working on the new themes in the rehearsal room?
Since Caladrius and Tyyn are also active in a Death Metal Band called Sabiendas the songwriting took a little longer than expected. It took us about two years to write all the songs for the album. Nevertheless we are still very satisfied with the outcome. In general we collect ideas and when we are in the rehearsal room we start jamming. Often pretty cool songs evolve and if a riff is missing -  one of us comes up with an idea of how to continue or finish a song. 

5. Nobody can deny the influence of the second wave of black metal, not only in their music, but also in the theme of their lyrics (Nordic mythology, demonology, etc.) Where does this influence come from in their music? important at that time, mid-nineties, to feel totally influenced and translate these influences into his music? 
As already mentioned, Caladrius and myself were teenagers in the 90s and grew up with the second wave of Black Metal. We always loved the music and the sound of the BM albums of that time. Whenever we finish a song we start to write lyrics in the mood that the song transports. That can be Nordic Mythology, Misanthropy, Demonology or War. It really depends on the songs. 


6. Do you think that black metal is a genre that should not evolve and that everything that has come after the nineties does not deserve to be called black metal? What do you suggest new aspects within the genre such as post-black? or the progressive black? 
Black Metal has evolved whether we like it or not. Luckily it is still a matter of choice and you can listen to the style you want. I personally am not a fan of any Post-Black, Progressive Black or Blackgaze or whatever you like to call it. BM in my mind has something to do with attitude and also with appearance. Just because you scream and use certain riffing doesn’t make you a Black Metal band automatically. 

7. Undoubtedly, the fact that the second wave of black metal is so present in his concept has to have a referent, that is, which or which are the definitive and essential albums of the mid-nineties that have most influenced him?
There are actually a lot of records which influenced us from the second wave! Some important of them are: Mayhem – De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas, Immortal – Pure Holocaust & Battles in the North, Impaled Nazarene – Tol Cormpt Norz Norz Norz, Darkthrone – A Blaze in the northern Sky, Emperor – Emperor EP & In the Nightside Eclipse, Enslaved – Frost, Satyricon – The Shadowthrone, Marduk – Those of the Unlight, Dark Funeral – The secrets of the black Arts…. The list goes on and on. Not to forget the big influence from the first wave with albums from Bands like Venom or Bathory.

8. Are you satisfied with the work done by Bret Hard Records regarding the promotion of the album? Are you surprised by the repercussion achieved by "Dominus Profundum"? Are you considering reissuing the album in some other format? 
Bret Hard Records is a rather small DIY Label and because I know Thorsten (Owner of Bret Hard Records) personally I know that he does everything he can to promote the bands on his roster as good as possible. Of course it would be cool if we could a find a worldwide Distribution Channel but for now we get along with social Media or Bandcamp. At the moment there are no plans from our side to reissue our album in another format but if somebody is interested to do so… please contact us. 

9. Toni Merkel (mix) and Alex Schiborr (mastering) and Alemsahim in the design, also have their part of merit in the edition of this new work, can they be considered as a fundamental part of Pestlegion? and how did the collaboration of North Wind in this album?
Toni is a fundamental part - no doubt. He knows how the band wants to sound like and does an incredible job. Also, Alex Schiborr is a good friend of our band and he often visits and hangs out with us at our rehearsal room. Alemsahim did a great job regarding the artwork for “Dominus Profundum”. Every artwork is drawn by hand the old school way. Maybe we will work together again in the future. Who knows?
Northwind is also living in our hometown Marl and we know him for a very long time. Everybody who has listened to his former Band Tsatthoggua knows what a great vocalist he is. So, we were glad that he agreed to do some backing vocals on our debut. 

10. It has been clear from the beginning of this interview the taste for classic sound by the band, but what was the last album you bought that was worth it? How do you see the current black metal scene and what groups do you recommend? from your area?
The last albums I bought were Morbid Angel’s “Kingdoms Disdained” and “Sweet Death and Ecstasy” from Midnight. Both are great albums which I can recommend. In general I think that the Black Metal Scene has grown over the last few years. When we started Pestlegion back in the days it was a kind of Anti-Trend as Brutal Death Metal was the dominant style. I do not recommend any band because I think that one should support the Metal Underground in general. If you like what you see and hear support the bands and buy their music and merchandise . There are a lot of good bands out there. Just open your eyes and ears.

11. Although you have offered some concerts, you do not show much in that aspect, how important is your contact with the public at concerts? Do you prefer quality to quantity when it comes to performing live?
As already mentioned Caladrius and Tyyn also play in a Death Metal Band and are very active regarding live Shows. So, we have to plan our gigs very carefully. In general we like to play live and also like to have contact with the public after the show. It’s always nice to meet new people and have a beer with them. So, if someone wants to book us please contact us (via Facebook) and I’m shure we can figure something out.

12. Are you working on new themes to edit soon or do you still have nothing ready? What future plans do you have for the band?
Actually we have just finished the recordings for our first release on Vinyl. It will be out in the first half of 2018 so stay tuned for updates. We will try to keep the old-school flame burning and hail the cult of Blood and Death. 

13. Thank you very much for the time dedicated to Black Metal Spirit, if you want to add something more for the followers of Pestlegion this is the place. I hope the questions have been to your liking.
Thanks for this interview! Stay Metal and support the underground. Visit the shows and support the local bands! All hail Black Metal!

NORDKARPATENLAND (2017)
Estamos ante un grupo diferente que desde el inicio de este segundo álbum deja las cosas claras, bueno a lo mejor no mucho porque adentrarse en la escucha de un álbum como este "Nordkarpatenland" puede acabar por descolocar a más de uno. Cuando la banda se creo en 2014, prácticamente no perdieron el tiempo en editar su primer trabajo, el cual recibió bastantes buenas criticas, sino me equivoco recuerdo haberlo escuchado pero no guardo un recuerdo especial sobre él. Por eso el echo de afrontar la escucha de este nuevo trabajo tampoco es que me estusiasmara especialmente, sobre todo al informarte un tanto sobre la banda y ver que la incluyen en la tendencia del black con tintes folk, género que acaba sonando la mayoría de las veces saturado de instrumentos folk, creo que todo lo anterior hizo que la primera audición transcurriera sin pena ni gloria, o sea otra banda más del montón. El afrontar esta reseña me hizo darle otra oportunidad y sobre todo darme cuenta a mi mismo de lo equivocado que estaba en un primer momento. La madurez y el paso adelante dado en todas las composiciones con respecto a su anterior obra es mayúsculo, habrá que preguntarles que culpa de ello tiene la inclusión de  Mirsolav y Peter desde el 2016 como miembros de la banda. Si que es cierto que Malokarpatan lleva un componente folk en su música pero este no esta representado por la inclusión de instrumentos folk en su música, los que hay son meros testigos, su aporte folk esta en el ambiente que logran trasmitir con su música de manera que el oyente se transporta a un ambiente que podríamos situar en un bosque lleno de leyendas en una época remota. Lo complicado de explicar es como consiguen esto con una propuesta de metal extremo en toda regla, que no se ciñe a los parámetros del black metal, pero que tiene suficientes elementos del metal extremo y del heavy clásico para sonar diferente, Master´s Hammer tiene que ser una influencia que deben de tener muy presente. Su música esta repleta de guiños a bandas como Bathory, Iron Mainden, Mortuary Drape o Mercyful Fate, y escuchar un álbum como este "Nordkarpatenland" es poder disfrutar de una experiencia única, de la mano de temas que suenan diferentes en cada momento, gusto por los medios tiempos, partes más rápidas, inclusión de elementos ambientales (que si un ciervo, que si unos pájaros, que si unas trompetas, etc...). Todo ello realizado con cuidado, buenos riffs trabajados a la perfección y unas voces la mayoría de las veces limpias y agresivas que logran atrapar al oyente. Sin lugar a dudas un álbum destacado que recomiendo encarecidamente a todo amante del metal extremo. (8,1).




1. Nordkarpatenland 01:20
Pour the funeral wine into glasses in long waves, Drink to Death in their skulls, poets, To stifle in us the rage of tears! [Èmile Nelligan: Banquet macabre]  
2. V okresném rybníku hastrman už po stáročá vyčína 06:14
On the landmark between the village and a dense forest There lies the domain of the vicinal water goblin An old pond overgrown by bulrush Where young lovers come to fondle on summer nights, when moon shuffles the water line But many of them have paid for their boldness When the age-old nix drew them down into his manor in the waters Where two podgy catfishes guard the crystal residence A dangerous monarch he is: demolishing barriers and launching floods, when he rages in anger On such days, one needs to sacrifice to him a black duck or a black pig, get anointed with herbs from Palm Sunday, and then once again he leaves the cups with souls in peace for a while Smoking a pipe on the willow under the moon of Botto*. (*Ján Botto, 19th century Slovak romanticist poet)  
3. Ked starého Bartolína ze šenku na táčkach zvážali 02:45
 Grim was the fate of gaffer Bartolín When his old hag woman kicked the bucket one year even his hens have pegged out since they weren't taken care of He decided to drown his miseries in liquor No longer did he drudge in the vineyard after work But he was hand in glove with the innkeeper and knew all the cups by heart Round the nightfall he got pissed like an animal Forgot hils old Maruša in the fire-water The fellows in the tavern knew by then it is time to bring the wheelbarrow from the barnyard and load Bartolín back home As they passed the burial ground he had a vision of his spouse yelling from beyond the grave; Grubs crawling across her visage, only black holes for eyes: "Just you wait, sottish carrion, within a year you will lie down here with me!" Aghast in dread, the old gaffer has never again dared to get close to liquor.
4. Ked svetlonosi započnú v močariskách nazeleno svícit 05:18
When the days get shorter in the village and blackness spreads its fangs Wintry wind blows away the leaves of autumn and the chimneys emit dense smoke Within the swamplands, little green flames begin to shimmer in the bogs Crawling above beech roots through the cold earth up to the crossroads One can see them among the farmhouses and round the wayside shrine they float With silent moaning they lure the gullible into a treacherous death in mud and thorns Those are will-o'-the-wisps, souls of the unborn wandering the land and heralding the arrival of frost.
5. Nedlho po púlnoci opacha sa doplazila z dzíry 04:37
In Javorníky, where the Kátlina brook flows through and lynxes wander through foggy pine groves A monster serpent has nested once in a settlement spreading chagrin and perdition When the flockmaster began to count his sheep in the morning Each week there was one sheep less So once on a bright June night he lurked hidden behind the pinfold, with a pipe to kill time Not long after midnight the abomination has crawled out of the hole spreading its jaws quickly Just then the flockmaster proceeded to beat briskly with a huge spade Battering and banging in a frenzy until he chopped off the nob of the creature Therefore, to this day the settlement bears the flockmaster's name Hadoše, where the beast was slain in olden days.
6. V hustej hore na stračích nohách striga chalupu svoju ukrýva 05:29
 Amidst the dense woods, black as tar Where toadstools grow in a fairy ring A fence stands, built of human bones Begirding the hut upon magpie legs There the witch with a hideous beak and crooked teets boils the fat of newborns in a cauldron In a red gleam, somber companions observe her: a fat black cat, a toad and a raven Preserving the secret of living and dead water A mirror that gazes within human hearts At evenings she creeps out of the hut in the shape of an owl or a hailstorm When she rubs herself with ointment made of dead children upon a broom and in a mortar she flies up to the stars Misfortunate is the astray wanderer who discovers the witches den His bones will be crushed and he will be thrown into the furnace Only if he blows a horn amain The Firebird from far away lands beyond the sun will arrive to rescue him from trouble.
7. Ked gazdovi upeleší sa v chyži nezdoba zmok 04:37
 When a black hen lays an egg in the henhouse The farmer, if he wishes for a guardian of his household, has to carry the egg in his armpit for nine days Don't bathe, don't sleep, stay away from the church If he keeps silent, the kobold will hatch As long as he is fed in befitting care He will watch over the homestead and call in ducats into the pouch But one has to keep in mind, it is a devilish creature That requests souls for its service And if someone arouses its wrath, it strangles men in their sleep After the nightfall, it storms in through the chimney as a fiery chain Only through a most burdensome task might the farmer get rid of the beast Then it melts into axle grease in anger Or he can wrap the kobold in a red kerchief, put it on a carriage, so the waggoner can throw it down the ditch on his way.
8. V rujnovej samote pocichu dumá lovecký zámek zvlčilého grófa 05:56
In the leeward side of the fir woods, the hunting chateau resides The mists of autumn encircle its dormers and towers The count sits silently in the solitude of the salon Emblem of a castaway lineage on the tapestry Luteolous candlelights reveals the walls with antlers, while October spreads the silvery shroud of morrow over briar bushes and dreary moors With the matutinal cawing, the savage beast returns from the hunt The wolfish form fades away with the moon On some nights, wild animals appease his hunger But it is not advisable to stray near the demesne for a simple peasant or a rosy-cheeked maiden, who wants to pick herbs before daybreak Fangs of the furry beast will cut into them and towards the arch of firs a screech will rise, interrupting the early song of a wood grouse. 
9. Na horárni ve folvarku šafári rohatý jáger 03:38
 A horned jaeger governs the gamekeeper's lodge in the uplands In a green uniform, his horns hidden by the hat With unearthly forces he operates and the godfearing villagers from the downlands shun away from him Strange visitors come to him at nights Fiacres with dandified noblemen who vanish before the dawn Eerie lights flash over the grove during that time and mephistophelean squalls are to be heard Otherwile, harlots frolic at his place and indulge in debauchery with dragoons Orchestrating festivities and card-player carousals where cognac and kontušovka* flows A hotbed of occult operations and blasphemies is the isolated gamekeeper's lodge Keep away from these places, simpleton When infernal intelligences are invocated Nobody will save your soul, dirty slob!
(*Kontušovka: an anise-flavoured liquor popular during the era of Austro-Hungarian Empire, which modern day Slovakia was a part of during the 19th and early 20th century.)
10. Ve starém mlyne čerti po nocách mariáš hrávajú 05:40
  During lucent nights of May When frogs croak their chants in the ponds and moon fumbles the bulrush Outrageous shrieks of a sort are to be heard from the old water mill behind the village And a laughter, that sends chills through the bones Red at once, green at once, the mill glows Belching out fumes and turning around Those are devils playing whist with poor souls at stake A decoy on gullible youths for the promise of infernal aid for ducat purses and hearts of women stealthily they pull out aces from the sleeves Many a fool has swallowed the devilish bait And the furred Belzebub welcomed him with his whip When he tempted providence regrettably, in the game of cards.
  45:34






ULTHA's second full-length album 'CONVERGING SINS' is a 63 minute rumination on the subject matter of how past events and wrong decisions will echo throughout the rest of our mortal existance.
Over years experiences of failure and the conscious ability to willingly commit mistakes, to hurt, to reject, 
to alternate truths etc. lead to a path where silence in and around you is the ultimate repercussion. The 
record is a testimony to everyday melancholia, inner solitude and the human struggle to lead the wrong life in the right, the struggle against your animalistic nature. 

On their second album ULTHA further their trademark sound of fast, hypnotic, reverberant Black Metal in a more US traditon played by acts such as Ash Borer, Weakling, Leviathan and Wolves In The Throne 
Room. It is combined with crushing Doom heaviness close to acts such as Lycus, Asunder and Forn while also blending in an overall hopeless and gloomy atmosphere mostly connected to Dark Wave bands such 
as The Sisters Of Mercy and (early) The Cure. The 2016 EP 'DISMAL RUINS' already showed the path ULTHA follow, adding multiple layers of electronics and slower passages in focus on overall diversive, 
captivating songstructures in mix with their juggernaut sound. 

The five songs reach lengths up to almost 20minutes while still balancing repetition and settle nuances in riffs to manifest melodies like echoes in the listeners head. And this is a thing ULTHA were good at right from the start: Writing real songs with tons of melody without lacking heaviness and urging intensity. The focus is always on the overall flow and feel of the record. Therefore the music, the metaphorical, cryptic lyrics by main songwriter R.Schmidt as well as the artwork (envisioned by Kevin Gan Yuen of Sutekh 
Hexen fame) need to be treated as a whole entity. 

The songs we're once again recorded and mixed in the bands rehearsal space called 'The Oil Pit' by the 
bands own Andy Rosczyk in Cologne (Germany). Mastering duties this time were taken by Jack Shirley at his Atomic Garden studio (California), where he already formed the massive sound of bands such as Lycus, Oathbreaker and Deafheaven. On track No.2 'Mirrors In A Black Room' the band could win British native currently residing in Berlin (Germany), Rachel Davies of the acclaimed post-punk/wave band Esben And The Witch for guest vocals. But she not only sang but also co-wrote the lyrics to the song.

VALHÖLL-DÛM



La historia de este proyecto comienza por 2014, por aquel entonces como dúo con la intención de crear un proyecto de metal extremo, al cual todavía le faltaban dos elementos importantes, un segundo guitarra y el vocalista. Desde sus inicios no perdieron el tiempo, y a pesar de no tener la formación todavía al completo se dedicaron a componer temas para cuando esta estuviera completa al fin. Fruto de todo este trabajo a través de estos últimos tres años es su primer larga duración " Under the Black Sun", ya como quinteto, que contiene diez temas que se podría encuadrar a groso modo dentro del black pagan metal. El álbum sigue la línea de la influencia de la mitología nórdica en cuanto a temática, sin embrago su música es bastante rica en cuanto a matices, quedarse sólo con su parte más black sería injusto, estamos ante un álbum de influencias variadas, en donde podemos descubrir elementos death, algunas partes más melódicas y una cierta épica, tal vez fruto de cierto aire power en algunas partes, en definitiva, todo ello huele a metal extremo de calidad. El álbum ha sido autoeditado por ellos mismos en formato digital y disponible en su página de bandcamp. En su página de facebook también tenemos cumplida información sobre la banda. 





The Norwegian horde which hails early black/death metal recorded 4 new tracks which constitute the A side and add a remastered version of their demo on B side.

A CALL TO ARMS (2017)
Cuatro temas contiene esta primera demo de la one man band estadounidense Vox Malorum. En ella se ofrecen en apenas veinte minutos un black metal de clara vertiente tradicional en la linea del black escandinavo de mediados de los años noventa, a lo que se le añadido cierta melodía gracias a la inclusión de teclados que no resultan cargantes, sino que se han acoplado bastante bien a los riffs y cumplen una función de melodía y aportan sensaciones de oscuridad y frialdad; incluso hay cabida en la propuesta por algunas influencias death en algunas partes de voces y melodías. El conjunto suena bastante compacto, a destacar el buen hacer en las voces de Shinigami, sin excentricidades, pero cumpliendo correctamente en una faceta de black crudo con algunas dosis de brutalidad, los riffs son crudos y variados, el peso del bajo se deja sentir también en algunas secciones y tal vez la programación de la batería sea en algún lugar un aspecto mejorable, pero en líneas generales también cumple. Sin lugar a dudas esta demo presenta un repertorio bastante acorde con el black de mediados de los noventa y deja la puerta abierta a la llegada de futuras obras de calidad. (8,4).




1. The Beginning ov the End 04:46
In darkness, I illuminate. Now descending through the astral plane. This silver thread is guidance from a journey ov enlightenment. Glimpsing the sphere, glowing and covered in shimmering lines extending to others. My body within, tainted by morbid intent and transformed with the head ov a serpent. My eyes slowly open. The inner beast has been awoken. Death begets only death. The mortal circle ov pain is endless. Poisoned by empathy, ripe with confusion, they're spreading their filth as my hatred ov humans devours my heart, yearning for violent extinction ov all as She bathes in the silence. Deny their insanity. I turn my back on humanity. I have seen enough. Now I need to go to the gods above and the gods below. 
2. Summoning the Black Winds 04:53
Three days journey in the snow, climb up the mountain. High above, in the clouds, it is hidden. An altar fashioned out ov stone by the ancients. I am seeking that which is forbidden. Summoning the black winds. Possessing flesh and bone. Giving voice to darkness. Returning to the throne. Such clarity ov mind as the mighty gale burst forth from my lungs. All my hindrances replaced with perspective my rebirth has begun. Summoning the black winds. Possessing flesh and bone. Giving voice to darkness. Returning my throne. Summoning the black winds. Speaking through my tongue. Summoning the black winds. The voice ov evil comes.
3. A Call to Arms 04:38
This is a call to arms. We've readied the horses. Sharpened the swords. Through cover ov nightfall we're riding to war. The journey is quiet. Teeth fully clenched. Nothing is loud as the aura surrounding these men. Riding to dawn, we will finally have our revenge. Flashes ov men bearing crosses and swords at their side, bathed in blood of the pagans unwilling to change for a lie. Our families' homes set ablaze in the name ov the christ. On the graves ov the fallen, I swear they will pay for their crimes. This is a call to arms. Approaching at first light. The sun rises slow. Announcing our silent arrival with omens in tow. When they look to the heavens, a sky painted red. I give one final thought to the ones that they sent to their death. I won't be sated til all ov their blood has been shed. Flashes ov steel burning cold in the dead of the night, contrasting the heat from the flames as they lit up the sky. It was then that we all understood the true sacrifice. Not the blood ov the lamb, but the blood ov our whole way of life. This is a call to arms. 
4. Gaia's Disease, Humanity 05:42
 Spreading like a virus undeterred. Unaware ov the damage as the skies are burning. O, the cancer ov the world. And we are the cure. Patience has ceased. Misanthropy feeds on the thoughts ov deities across the ages. Gaia's disease, humanity reeks. Decomposing mentally, we should erase them. Human existence is a plague. We've long dreamed of extermination. Seeing their expressions ov pain as they beg to be saved. Chaos is king. Destroyer ov the weak. They can die with their beliefs, it doesn't faze us. Gaia's disease, humanity reeks. Decomposing mentally, we should erase them. Famine and pestilence for all ov the petulant mortals whose life is spent ignoring the truth. Whispers from shadows encourage the cattle to fight holy battles. Need only influence a few. Let's put their faith to good use. We'll show you just what they can do. Patience has ceased. Misanthropy feeds on the thoughts of deities across the ages. Gaia's disease, humanity reeks. Decomposing mentally, we should erase them.

WALPURGISNACHT (2016)
La banda comienza su andadura hace casi veinticinco años, pero realmente no ha sido hasta hace unos tres años que han vuelto a reunirse y a completar line-up que podemos hablar de una banda en toda regla, y esto ha culminado con su primer larga duración. Los comienzos fueron bastantes turbulentos, la banda se hacia llamar de una manera totalmente diferente y la entrada y salida de miembros era una constante, aún así se las arreglaron para editar un par de demos. El tiempo ha pasado y mal que nos pese, a pesar de los problemas que han tenido que sortear, sin lugar a dudas ha servido para que este regreso sea un regreso en toda regla, con su primer álbum bajo el brazo y con la madurez que han logrado atesorar. "Walpurgisnacht" despacha nueve temas en poco más de cuarenta y tres minutos. La música de Elizabethan Walpurga atesora varias características diferenciadoras que quedan perfectamente reflejadas en su música, estamos hablando de black metal que se adentra y enriquece con diferentes estilos dentro del metal extremo. Podemos distinguir elementos representativos pertenecientes a la vertiente del heavy clásico, y otras, que tienen más que ver con el metal no sólo tradicional sino que bandas que han evolucionado dentro del estilo, así como del folk, música clásica y tradicional. La temática gira en torno al temas del vampirismo partiendo del luciferanismo y la oscuridad. Todo ello dota a la banda, como comentaba anteriormente de una identidad muy marcada y hacen que su música resulte diferente. Teniendo en cuenta que los temas que nos ofrecen en este álbum fueron compuestos en los comienzos de la banda, también nos habla bien a las claras del potencial de la misma. Cada tema del álbum está muy cuidado y aunque la temática es similar en todos ellos, lo cierto que los temas fluyen de manera perfecta, enriqueciéndose con riffs extensos de sonoridades clásicas, el equilibrio entre agresividad y melodía está muy conseguido, las voces suenan agresivas y van por caminos tanto black como death, ciertos arreglos instrumentales aportan variedad a la formula y la cuidada producción permite disfrutar de la sonoridad del bajo. Estamos, por lo tanto, ante una propuesta diferentes, difícil de clasificar, pero que bebe de diferentes estilos dentro del metal extremo. (7,8).
