Well not every day do I get an opportunity to review a black metal band, so it excites me when something like this gets presented to me and allows me to adjust my peripheral for a moment, and all I have is the cold hard facts to work with as presented to me.

So let’s get technical and historical for a moment. Christian black metal is often touted as unblack metal and its origins are largely a disputed one, but it’s safe to say both Australian’s Horde and Norway’s Antestor are the fathers of the genre. Obviously Unblack metal focuses on Christian themes and philosophies. A lot of this genre’s music has adopted unconventional song structures.

Cloth is a musical collective consisting of members of, Stronghold, DALIT and Aspiration. So these Black Metal rockers take you through a journey of the hopelessness of humankind we all feel.

Nordic Mission proudly presents Cloth, a black metal band from the South/West of Norway. The band will release theit “Axis Mundi” EP on May 30th.

Axis Mundi is here to take you through a journey of the hopelessness of humankind we all feel. It confronts what has led us to where we are, and to what end we all are coming closer to – with a strong philosophical and allegorical backbone behind it all.

The sounds these thoughts create are filled with anger and melancholy combined with dark melodies, furious riffs and infuriated, regretful vocals. Norway’s own Cloth delivers to you a piece of furious black metal with a doomy attitude through and through, possibly hailing from their previous work in Dalit and Aspiration. You can also hear the musical influences from bands such as Satyricon, Drottnar or even My Dying Bride or Anathema. The 4 track EP is now available for pre-order!
