READ ENDLESS BLIZZARD REVIEW IN METAL MANIACS HERE
Only 500 plagues released to the un-worthy masses! LIMITED DOUBLE-LP [Heavyweight 140 Gram] VINYLS in luxurious ultra-deluxe (or 'Noble' as they say in Europa) GATEFOLD JACKET; includes printed inner-sheet! Available on CD with full-colour lyric-booklet, too!
Medieval occult Black War Metal featuring LIGHTNING SWORDS OF DEATH member Roskva (guitars, vocals, all music and lyrics), with VALDUR drummer L.Sxuperion! Also featuring ultra-dark fine artwork by Autarch (LIGHTNING SWORDS OF DEATH, NACHTMYSTIUM).
Brooding and intense Nordic-influenced USBM with a touch of old Prog atmosphere, and agressive Blackened attack closely comparable to CLANDESTINE BLAZE's "Night of the Unholy Flames" plus a strong CELTIC FROST-inspired doomy base. With some obvious similarities to LIGHTNING SWORDS OF DEATH, "Remember Your Death" by ENDLESS BLIZZARD unleashes surprisingly excellent production made prominent through total clarity of utterly massive sound, all propelled by the blistering traps of drummer-extraordinaire Lord Sxuperion of VALDUR and SXUPERION! Sparse use of ancient keyboards give a dark, foreboding atmosphere like old '70s Prog / Doom bands from Italy; a very obscure and ritualistic ambience highlighted by the truly cult cover-version of 'Bruder des Schattens' originally by the legendary POPOL VUH!
Mesmerizing and hallucinogenic at times, yet always headbangingly aggressive and raging. Overall, well-composed Black Metal songs with epic cinematic brutality, supported by top-notch guitar-work, and brutal grim vocals, ENDLESS BLIZZARD's full-length debut album, 'Remember Your Death' [CD or Double-LP], will no doubt impress diehard fanatics of seriously True American Underground darkness and rage! This is not 'fun' music to fuck around to, so REMEMBER YOUR DEATH!
10 Songs; 49:06 minutes. Released: Memorial Day 2008.
* Newly reviewed by a former METAL MANIACS editor:
"Led by Roskva of LIGHTNING SWORDS OF DEATH, this is the first full-length from ENDLESS BLIZZARD. 'Remember Your Death' carries on the great traditions of the current USBM underground while maintaining its own clear sense of direction. Fusing aggressive, pounding black metal brutality with doom-drenched passages and prog touches, this is one of the best black metal debuts of 2008. Album opener is an interpretation of Popol Vuh's 'Bruder Des Schattens' ('Winters Early Breath'), which gives you a clue about this band's wide-ranging influences." -- Jeff Wagner
