Angelscourge - In the Realm of the Horned (Cassette)
The spirit of Satan masterfully invoked by this Finnish angelscourging entity, with a strong emphasis on the ancient Scandinavian black metal sound (reminiscent of old DARK FUNERAL, DISSECTION, SACRAMENTUM, VINTERLAND etc.) carrying the sacred flame born before the creation of Man...

- Black Crystal Gardens
- Serpents in the Frozen Mist
The roots of ANGELSCOURGE's Black Metal are definitely in the Swedish style of early 90s Black Metal; in those times when bands like DISSECTION, UNANIMATED, MÖRK GRYNING, SACRAMENTUM and the likes... The guys have obviously taken their time to cook their pitch-black ingredients of an unceremoniously bled blood and twice vomited venom without any specific time frame; so album-ready they do sound like on this 3-track effort of theirs. Any further analysis about this very much nut-kicking icon-smasher would be as unnecessary as giving a drum lesson to Dave Lombardo. 5 horns up for these lads! - Voices from the Darkside 5/5
