Beherit – Drawing Down The Moon (1993)

Drawing Down The Moon is a landmark of the more brutal side of the black metal spectrum. Beherit are, of course, a legendary name in such circles, but honestly I had always avoided this album because I thought the cover looked really terrible and it didn’t sell itself to me. I’m glad that eventually I got around to listening to this as its a monster of an album. Expect lo-fi war metal styled brutality, with ominous sci-fi themes. A strange one!
