At least in their home country Norway, there's
no one interested in the darker shades of metal who hasn't heard about Kråke.

The compositions are self-sustained; still great names like Immortal, I, Windir,

I have strong faith in Kråke, let's rejoice over conquering the death of
black metal at last!
