The Conquering – A Home We Lost

It’s Black Metal time. . .from my home town of Columbus, Ohio. Yes, you read that correctly. Ohio beeyatches. Talkin’ about The Conquering, a group who have a bit of history with the ole’ Rev. Some members are kind enough to read/comment on this blog occasionally but without regards to that – if they sucked I’d say so.  Unfortunately, I’ve have that reputation [I blame Budweiser].

This time out, I can only say – WHOA! In the words of Nathan Explosion of Dethklok – it’s BRUTAL. Seriously, don’t follow that link unless you’re prepared for the onslaught. Very tight, very well executed Norwegian style Black Metal from the heart of Ohio. Ihsahn would be proud.

Obviously, not for the faint of heart or you Cradle fans who think you know what that scene is all about. Not dissin’ Cradle here, but when I say oldschool. . . I fucking mean it.   And considering the state of ‘the scene’ these days, anyone ANYWHERE who’s true to the sound and inspiration of that movement. . . well, I think they deserve a serious listen.  ‘The Glorious Return’. . . go play it.  g’head.   Excellently heavy and as full of hatred as anything Gorgoroth can conjure.

Another fav – “Come Drink Mead With Us”. . .well, I’d like to think I was an inspiration.  Prolly not, but I’d like to think so. 

Horns Bolthorn.  Well done & I wish you lots o’ luck.

    Really? Do you listen to Norwegian Black Metal?

    Dolgar, not sure if that was cynicism or not – but yes, I do. I listen to pretty much all types of Metal.
