Black Metal Crusaders.....

Advantages: original, well-executed, musically diverse and hugely enjoable!

Crusader-themed black metal played by a bunch of English blokes that like to pose on their album covers stood in front of ruined castles dressed up in medieval armour and waving swords around... sounds well and truly cringeworthy doesn't it? Fortunate ...

Review of Death Cult Armageddon - Dimmu Borgir

Advantages: Has a good variation of songs for Black Metal lovers and the music is of good quality compared to other artists.
