In The Coming Of Darkness

In The Coming Of Darkness
(Candlelight Records - 2011)

It's a special album for the English guys from Nine Covens, their debut in the black metal world. They have chosen to release 9 songs, but named those songs Resurrection Pt.1, Pt. 2, Pt.3 and Ascension Pt.1, Pt.2 and Judgement Pt.1, Pt.2 and Exiles Pt.1, Pt.2.
Every band do the songs their own way, and the recipe from Nine Covens is an introduction Resurrection Pt.1 which is completely different from the rest of the material, soft guitars that could belong in another world than Nine Covens are in. The 8 next songs are very much alike, very forcing quick speed black metal full of melodic pressuring banging black stuff. It's not sublime all of it, but a fine debut for a band who could have a good future especially if they spread their music over a little wider area than they do on this debut album.

6 stars
