1349 – Beyond The Apocalypse (2004)

1349 are fucking relentless. I’ve made the effort recently to go back and check out some of their earlier works, after consistently being impressed by most of the records that dropped since Hellfire caught my attention in 2006, or whenever it was.

Beyond The Apocalypse is much like the band’s other releases in that it is an unstoppable weapon of a black metal war machine, but it possesses its own unique coldness and atmosphere.
