13 Years Ago: VELES release The Black Ravens Flew Again


VELES released their last album on this day in 2004. Great album by an important band within the notorious Polish 90's underground! Released by Der Sieg Records.
Rich atmosphere aided by Darken (GRAVELAND) and a strong production. This is not the savage Black Hateful Metal album from a few years previous; it's closer to Night on Bare Mountain and still recognisably part of the great Polish legacy.

I was born in frosty country
Among eternal silence
I hiked among sorrow
Too dark, too hateful
A cold, frosty moon's my only brother
