These days it can tend to be rare to come across bands that are both entirely original while also not too far out there with their quirkiness, and that combine the best of both the familiar and the unconventional. Greece's Hail Spirit Noir already added to the list of such bands with their 2012 effort Pneuma, not only one of the best debuts of the year, but easily one of the most impressive progressive black metal releases in quite a while. But if Pneuma was a rainstorm of success, then Oi Magoi is a typhoon, and easily clears up any doubts about the band that may have been left with their previous album.

  First listen right now. Sounds every bit as good as the debut so far.

  Btw "oi magoi" means "the mages/wizards" in the greek language.

Rating: 8 Good album but like I expected, I prefer their debut over this.
EDIT: am I the only one who hears a little of virus the first track?

Rating: 10 A great album in its entirety, the 2014 starts well.
all musics is good. Influences such as Oranssi Pazuzu, (especially in music Oi mogoi) voice reminds me shining a few times. a black album easy access.

Special mention:
Blood Guru
Demon For A Day
Satan Is Time
The Mermaid

  Back in 2012 I either couldn't get into Pneuma or didn't think it was all that special, but about a month ago I listened again and I was very impressed. It's very possible that this one will beat everything for AOTY of 2014.

Rating: 9 Hail Spirit Noir reminds me Noekk at times. That's good, because I miss them really much and now there is someone to fill the gap.

  THIS BAND RULES!

Rating: 10 I'm listening this album over and over again and just can't get enought. New kind of epicness.
First of my TOP 2014 albums list.

Rating: 9 Fantastic album! Sounds a bit like Sarke made love to Ghost and did a lot of drugs.

To say that this album is an experience is an understatement! Best black metal album I've heard in years!

I won't be surprised if that happens! XD

Rating: 8 Very interesting album, and is certainly consistent all the way through. I love all the instrumental experimentation going on here, particularly in songs like "Demon for a day" and "The Mermaid", which are both superbly written in my opinion. The harsher vocal style for me seems a little unnecessary and part of me wishes that all the vocals would be clean or harmonic, but I guess that's the inclusion of the black metal influence seeping in. Nonetheless, one of this year's more invigorating releases for sure.

  I think I like this a lot, but not sure Absolutely love Satan Is Time & Oi Magoi, the bass owns so hard throughtout the record too. The other tracks struck me less but must admit the songwritting is brilliant.
