Circumambulations of the Solar Inferno Nightbringer is an old favourite whom I've followed since their 2005 split Rex Ex Ordine Throni, while I've had differing opinions on their releases over the years there is no denying they always bring something challenging to the listener. Once the first track gets going after a lengthy intro and build up it does not cease, absolutely relentless complex black metal, with that special sound which right away identifies this Nightbringer. It's on the second track they really shine though, perhaps a bit simpler and more straightforward it's an absolute ripper of a song, which currently tops my list of most played songs of the year. Dødsengel is a band I've had less exposure to, only having heard 2010's Alongside Chorozon and while it's a decent release it didn't impress me. What change a few years does, the two tracks presented here are vastly superior flowing beautifully together and clocking in at an impressive 17 minutes total. For anybody who likes complex and challenging black metal this is the must have release of the year.
