Blut Aus Nord, "Odinist" Blut Aus Nord

After confounding the black metal world (in a good way) with ‘The Work Which Transforms God’ in 2003, France’s Blut Aus Nord proceeded to confound once again (this time in a not so good way) with ‘MoRT’. Both albums were merciless slabs of atonal misery, but something about ‘MoRT’s industrial lurching just didn’t click with some listeners. Evidently, that record...

Ultima Thulee
Candlelight Records
This, the first effort of France’s Blut Aus Nord, is a competent meld of horror synth and sparse, vague, Emperor-isms, culminating in a completely fucked, scary slab of thick black metal. Reminiscent of elder Immortal, Moonblood, Graveland minus the folk, Ultima Thulee stands as a strong debut, and given the use of the synth-scapes, can easily stand as a grindy...
