Black metal already existed long before it became a significant hit in Norway and flourished internationally before its heydays in Norway. However, the impact of the Norwegian scene on black metal is undeniable. One person that helped black metal grow so much across Norway and beyond was Euronymous (Oystein Aarseth), who masterminded Mayhem because of his high openness to creative experimentation. However, after he died in 1993, there was a tricky question about how black metal will continue to perform locally and globally. The energy was either going to drift away, or the genre would continue to grow and hit new heights that even Euronymous couldn’t have imagined. It didn’t take long before the question was answered. Fortunately, the latter proved to be the case, and one of the major driving forces behind this was the band Satyricon. In 1994, Satyricon delivered two Norwegian folk black metal music albums with a medieval atmosphere, titled The Shadowthrone and Dark Medieval Times. These two albums made waves, but the best was yet to come. In 1996, two years later, they released a third album – Nemesis Divina. This was an instant hit that took the band ahead of the pack at the time and shone more light on black metal globally. Before we mention any of the songs on the Nemesis Divina album, we need to start from the forward-thinking and bold nature of the album cover. Of course, there was a prototype for album covers within the black metal genre, especially within the Norwegian scene. It was roughly DIY white and black photographs, dark-toned color on shadowed images, or stark sketch drawings. This was exemplified across the genre and even in the first two albums by Satyricon. However, the cover for Nemesis Divina was something special, a unique work of art. You could tell from listening to the album that there was fiery aggression that burned throughout the songs’ instrumentation. They abandoned the lone acoustic guitar passage in their last albums, and the keyboards were arranged in accompaniment with the riffs of the guitar instead of taking a sole focus. According to a pro essay writing, one can feel Norwegian folk music’s influence, a constant change through their career. However, it is mainly used as a thematic break from the aggressive fury. This is prominent on the riffs in the second part of “Forhekset” and the keyboard passage in the hypnotic tremolo riff in “Du som hater Gud.” The higher definition in their recording ensures that the instruments are heard exquisitely clear instead of cacophony, allowing the listeners to appreciate the beauty of the compositions. Although there were many highlights and collaborations, the crown jewel on this album is “Mother North.” This six-and-a-half-minute track with infectious melodies, brooding atmospheres, and varied paces became the most recognizable song of the band’s career. The proof of this is in the elicit chanting of the crowd across their live venues worldwide. One of the reasons why “Mother North” became a huge hit, as mentioned in topbritishessays, is its music video, which was one of the earliest examples of a video for black metal music. It gave a more atmospheric dream than the expected linear story, but it correctly exhibited the themes with which Satyr created the song, mostly romanticism for Norway. The video was a full-fleshed exhibit of several key elements of the black metal scene in Norway. Satyricon went on to change after the era of Nemesis Divina, but throughout their career, the success and legacy of this album never left them. On the contrary, it continued to propel them forward many years after. On the 20th anniversary of the album in 2016, Satyricon, while hesitant about feeling nostalgic about the past, toured the entire album. This was a lovely tribute to the old fans who were with them as they evolved and their newer fans who missed the heydays of the album. Five years on and twenty-five years since the album was released, it is still regarded as a classic album that delights fans worldwide. As the lyrics of the highlight song of the album goes: “united we stand, together we walk.” Author BioEliza Sadler is a professional journalist with extensive experience, four years, working for A writer com and Essay on Time, where you can order a college essay.

L-R - Bone Tower - Sean Carroll (guitars, bass), Jonas DeViller (electronics, vocals), Michael Bowers (guitars, bass, vocals)Photo Credit: Hayley Frail Both sonically and lyrically, the debut EP from Bone Tower, “We All Will Die One Day” represents a collective status of disarray. Challenging speed and complex rhythms serve to accelerate unfavourable feelings to the forefront of your mind. The first single off this succinct record is “Mangled Wounds”, the words in which are totally up for interpretation and expresses a couple of different personal thoughts. According to the band, it was written both literally, outlining repeated trauma; as well as figuratively, about how one might process anxiety and depression. They continue to explain in their own words:“Opening abruptly with tremorous blast beats and rattling vocals, this tune wastes no time in delivering its taunting message. With a sense of urgency, the cryptic lyrics rest upon escalating guitar licks, as drums rapidly push this anthem to the point of no return. Briefly, you are allowed to catch a quick breath, only to be slingshotted into a barrage of open chugs. The mainline ‘mangled wounds torn open again...’ is chanted back at you, and you are plunged into the second interlude track, ‘Cower Away’.”The eight tracks on the EP come in at just over nine minutes, but capture a full array of raucous violence. “We All Will Die One Day” is abrasive, pissed off, and fatiguing. If you’re into that kind of thing, you'll like it.Bone Tower is a fresh group having started in February of this year, they came together with the sole purpose of creating this record, and have delivered on that with this auditory assault. The band worked collaboratively writing and performing the songs, it was produced, mixed, and mastered by Michael Bowers and the album artwork was done by Jonas Deviller.For fans of grindcore and death metal, Bone Tower is suitable for fans of Full of Hell, Pig Destroyer, and Cryptopsy.The single “Mangled Wounds” can be heard via its premiere on IDIOTEQ HERE. The EP “We All Will Die One Day” will drop on November 5, 2021 via No Funeral Records & Fresh Outbreak Records.EP pre-order - https://bonetower.bandcamp.com Track Listing:1.

We All Will Die One Day (0:50)EP Length (9:09) For more info:Facebook.com/bonetower.hfx Instagram.com/bonetower EPK About:Bone Tower got its start early in 2021, with the sole purpose of channeling built-up negative energy and creating a hectic, pissed-off sounding record. Hailing from Atlantic Canada they got straight to the point through pummeling angry death metal. Bone Tower is the musical equivalent of the chaos ensuing globally since last year. An angry jab back at the universe for anyone who was angry and watched the world unfold with racial upheaval, conservatives and conspiracists coming out of the woodwork against Covid, economic regression with millions losing jobs, the entire world changing beneath our feet, and for the politicians who claimed to be on our side but continue to fight against the truth. The trio of Jonas DeViller (vocals/electronics/lyrics), Sean Carroll (guitar/bass), and Michael Bowers (guitar/bass/vocals) is a seasoned one at that and they were able to quickly write and produce their debut EP ‘We All Will Die One Day’ in two weeks. It came together as a whole very quickly and organically. This is just the start for Bone Tower, they already have a follow-up record in the works. As of now, they are mostly a recording project but they intend on eventually playing shows. When they do finally play live, it’s bound to be just as fucked up as the recording. EP ‘We All Will Die One Day’ is due out November 5, 2021. Less

L-R: Joel Tassillo (Bass) / Joey Scaringi (Vocals) / Vladimir Prokhorov (Drums) / Patrick Forlin (Guitar)Photo Credit: Britney Goertz Hailing from Niagara Falls, Canada, Varius brings forth a new EP “Concordance” that aims to challenge genre boundaries, more so than any of their previous releases. The second single “Lament of Dissonance” can now be enjoyed with a visualizer video currently being premiered over at Bravewords HERE. “Lament of Dissonance” balances between a relatively straightforward groove track and an experimental piece. The song begins with melodic guitars before descending into a crushing groove riff in the verses. The band explains further:“The track came about in a different way for us, originating from a piano piece that our drummer, Vlad, had written. We worked together to rearrange the melodies and other parts for guitar and bass, adding more details and riffs along the way until the song took on its own identity. It became one of the groovier, more straightforward tracks on the EP, and easily represents the heaviness of this album. We worked together lyrically as well, telling the story of a genius composer cracking under the pressure of expectations from their audience, before channeling their doubt into a masterpiece. To top it off, the end of the song has a certain twist that keeps with the experimental tradition of Varius, and it stands out to us as a special track.”While the song takes a personal perspective from this individual and describes the burden of living up to the demands of a hungry audience, Varius embraces the stage, aiming for tightness and consistency in our individual parts, as well as our tempo and groove as a band. One area where they really stand out is with frontman, Joey Scaringi, a local FM radio host and talented public speaker, who has a great personality for a frontman with his energetic stage presence. Passion and dedication have provided them opportunities such as sharing the stage with bands like Beyond Creation and Ninjaspy.The progressive, melodic death metal of Varius is suitable for anyone with an open mind, especially those who enjoy Children of Bodom, Hypocrisy, and Lamb of God.“Concordance” comes out on November 5, 2021 Watch the EP trailer at the following link: https://youtu.be/z8o8HaRX0GgTrack Listing:1.
