Nartvind - Ruinous - 12"LP
Back in the day it took Belgium’s NARTVIND seven years to follow-up on their infamous demo. Finally, in 2010, the band’s so far sole full-length album “Ruinous” was unearthed on CD and tape format courtesy of, amongst others, Finnish Grievantee Productions. Any kind of hype certainly was never to be expected for such a release in the early 2010’s and those times’ shallow uncalled-for perspectives to evaluate and experience the dark arts. To us “Ruinous” and its haunting grave-like coldness nevertheless always was a mysterious cultish gem of bleak and painful Black Metal. Still today, from its first note onwards, this exceptional piece of total grimness cuts deep under your pale skin and takes any listener on a pure transgressive ride into the self-destructive empty black void.
In clandestine conspiracy, Deviant Records and Gramschap proudly summon this harsh classic of raw & timeless intensity again. On the format it deserves, for your genuine displeasure.
