FOR | BLAKAZ ASKO HERTO [SWEDISH RAW BLACK METAL] REVIEW BY LUKE HAYHURST

PromoImage (1)

For are a Swedish raw black metal band who identities and precise location are unknown. Formed this year the band has already released its debut album entitled “Kundaz” but now has returned but a few months later with the follow up, an EP going by the name of “Blakaz Asko Herto”.

 

For offer much to enjoy and experience and the mysterious nature of the band and their whereabouts only adds to the allure. Opening with a demonic title track intro the scene is duly set for the four tracks that will follow.

 

Merciless grinding fury in musical form, a mystical occult message and most all out right savagery from start to finish. This EP is no hurry to get anywhere and so labours along its path steadily, spewing forth a vast concoction of vile sinister foreboding.

 

Yet this isn’t your average black metal rampage at society in one long procession of hate, and whilst the music is dangerous and prowling, song titles such as “Descending Obfuscated Realms” and “Lineage of the Amorphous” demonstrate a much higher level of thinking at play. Superbly executed and all wrapped up in the superb artwork you can see above, For are a band worth keeping tabs on. [8] https://www.facebook.com/theravenouschasm
