The Northern darkness marches through the coldest night!
Released just a few months after several other legendary albums (including Darkthrone's Blaze in the Northern Sky and Burzum's self-titled debut), Diabolical Fullmoon Mysticism is another essential piece of Norwegian Black Metal, an important part of the foundation! It is a transitional album, and not quite the same Immortal heard on the incredible next album, but still a killer record and fully recommended!

Despite their young age, they succeed in delivering a mature-sounding work. Demonaz's riffing is very tight, and not usually breaking the evil-sounding tremolo rule. The chainsaw-like riffs are fast, angry and relentless. The low frequencies are very masterfully covered by Abbath's heavy bass lines. This is one of those old black metal albums where the bass keeps rumbling all the time... This is an underrated raw black metal jewel, and it is often overlooked by the fans of the genre. If you like black metal, grab this as soon as possible. The evil, harsh atmosphere will undeniably be to your immense liking. - Metal Storm4/5
