Australia has very active and great extreme music underground scene and although it is on the other side of the world, music knows no boundaries. Nocturnal Graves just released their new full length opus with Season of Mist and it is their fourth full length in eighteen years of existence. What can we expect on this one? Total annihilation, brutality, energy and apocalypse! Gutwrenching fast drumming, blistering fast solos with some melody thrown here and there for good measure, some slower rolling parts reminding me of best Morbid Angel times and above all growling angry vocals from pits of Hell themselves. Nocturnal Graves took what they needed from death, black and thrash metal leaving only bloody smoldering corpse on the ground. This one is wicked, fast, no holds barred lesson in blackened death metal. Songs like Death to Pigs, Ruthless Fight or Law of the Blade are for sure winners. Go get this one. Just what you need to lighten up your blackened heart and give you energy for new battles.
