Bands
Herfst

H e r f s is a 5 piece melodic death/black metal band from Belgium combining the brutality and sonic assault of death metal with the dark & brooding charm of black metal. This mixture, spiced up with harmonically rich guitar wizardry and a penchant for the melancholic, introspective soul of doom metal forms the essence of what they call 'Nekromantic metal'.

While composing straight from their dark hearts, the morbidity Herfst delivers honours the illustrious pallbearers of black/death/thrash and horror metal while maintaining a fresh and original sense of dynamics.
