BLACK MESSIAH was founded back in 1992 as a pure old school black metal band but changed their direction from black to pagan metal with ‘Oath of a Warrior’ in 2005.
In 2006 they released the fantastic ‘Of Myths And Legends’ and are about to release their brand
new one, named ‘The First War of the World’.
We get 13 songs of pure blackened-pagan-viking-folk metal with stunning melodies that will
make you jump up and down in excitement. BLACK MESSIAH shifts from blackened pagan
metal to enchanting folk music and back again, so if you’re looking for variety... you got it.
‘The First War of the World’ got it all; Guitars, flutes, violins, catchy choruses... everything that a splendid pagan-folk album needs. To put it simple; This disc never gets boring, not even with repeated listens.
‘The First War of the World’ deals with the Nordic mythology and being a Norseman my self, I always welcome an album packed with songs about Odin, Valhalla and all that stuff, especially if the songs are top notch. And they certainly are here on this disc.
The songs win with every single spin and there’s not a single filler to be found, so order this album right away.
‘The First War of the World’ is the pagan metal album to top this year... period.
