Guest review by

Abigor's third full-length album "Orkblut-The Retaliation" was released in 1995. This album is a very good example of an album with a good fusion of rawness, atmospheric sound and melody. I must say that the performance of drums, guitars and keyboards is well coordinated. Sometimes it happens that in a particular part of a song, the speed doesn't suit, or keyboards don't suit or so on; but in this album you will not find any weaknesses as such. Timely use of keyboards and timely speeding-up have enhanced the songs and to a great extent helped in creating a good atmosphere. The performance of the band members is really worthy of appreciation, for there are only two members involved in performing the instruments (i.e. excluding the vocals) and they have played with good timing and skill.

  I know this is only an EP and not a Full Length, but I think it fucking SLAYS the debut album!
I have somewhat of a weakness for Dark Ambient/Medieval/Neo-Classical interludes as well.

Rating: 8 This is my favorite Abigor release. The black metal and dark medieval/pagan atmosphere complement each other perfectly.
