Norway is home to many genre defining bands that have single handedly redefined the music they play. Mare is their answer for black metal. They only exist to make their dark art and shun everything else.
Favorite track: These Fountains Of Darkness.
A long overdue return of this nidrosian black metal set and certainly worth as adding to your collection. Overall great quality with the production too.
Favorite track: Blood Across The Firmament.
Forged in the early 2000's, MARE has become quite the mysterious gem for underground fanatics across the globe. Rarely playing live and with hard to get releases, the band has become, for many, one of the few 'real' Black Metal bands out there left in todays oversaturated scene. To many they have seemed to do so on purpose, but for us working closely with the band it is simply in their nature not to bother. They make music for themselves, they do this for themselves, and rest assured MARE will genuinely keep going down their own path never caring about hypes, fashion, trends or fame. They arrogantly named their own music 'Nidrosian Black Sorcerous Art' which defines who they are, on stage and off stage.
This isn't a show, this isn't a gimmick.
This is real Black Metal how it always was meant to be.

Polish Black Metal band Mgła takes you musically into a dark world where everything is doomed in utter bleakness. Filled with misanthropic and nihilistic lyrics, the listener will imagine what it means on the issues of society as a whole. the-cool-fox
"Curse These Metal Hands" parlays the UK bands' chemistry into a record which—for all its tinnitus-inducing ferocity and elegiac arrangements—practically drips with transcendent joy. Bandcamp Album of the Day Aug 18, 2019
