I still haven't found an answer why Inquisition has blown up like they have and gems like One Master are only known to those who dig deep into the underground. This is one of the greatest USBM projects ever and falls nothing short of european authorities such as early Horna or Thy Darkened Shade. LB is a modern Black Metal essential album.
Grim the Reaper
Oh my god, this band! So glad I discovered this, fave 2017 black metal release right here.
This thing is catchy, it's got personality, and most importantly it sucks me into this hurricane of darkness that leads to this world of unholy evil, blasphemous rituals, cold frozen landscapes and sinister intentions. I will definitely be checking out this band's earlier work, because this isn't a world that I want to leave.
One Master's follow-up to 'Reclusive Blasphemy' is another tome of seething black metal. The production might be just a touch better this time, but doesn't reduce the attack of this great project.
Favorite track: The Black Bat.
"There’s something very vitalistic to the music of One Master. It’s brimming with energy, with force and strength...One Master sticks to the narrow notion of black metal, but does that extremely well." - Echoes and Dust

Why do people like this music? Because they hate how it carries them away? How it transfers sound into inner peace? How it is right on, as a combination of all right sounds and tempo; like a violent peace that it is?
