Digisleeve CD, limited to 500 copies
Nocturnes Mist's fifth album entitled, 'Marquis of Hell' has the distinction of being undoubtedly the band's finest hour. 'Marquis of Hell' delivers not just solid, but stellar black metal which is straight up, unapologetic and not self conscious or over-thought but just the way it should be, delivered in its most genuine, traditional form; musically and thematically.
With 'Marquis of Hell' these veterans of second wave black metal carve out not just mere 90s nostalgia but music which contains the spirit of its creators and a time when black metal was spirited and compelling.
Influenced by a plethora of 90s Black Metal with traces of the Norwegian and Swedish sound, in addition to the isolated savagery of the early Australian scene. This is the wolves jaws clamping down on falsehood, their vice-like grip heralding honest, pure traditionalism from a group whose heart was etched in the 90s black metal scene and for whom a pure passion for the genre still continues regardless of trend or outside influence. 'Marquis of Hell' is an elixir to those who crave devotion to darkness and Black Metal for the sake of Black Metal.... for these are the wolves of Satan hear their battle cry!
