bmurator Black metal from Armenia in the form of 5 brothers! This gives a unique focus and tightness to the music that is unique, apart from some one man bands. It is Pagan black metal with an epic feel to it! Definitely on my AOTY list! Favorite track: Boundless Numen : Gardens Of Ardini.

𝙅𝙤𝙚 𝙎𝙥𝙞𝙣𝙚𝙡𝙡 So fucking good power metalish blackened death with very versatile palette. Every song is unique individual beastride thru epic plains of mud, frost, fire pillars and hungry steel. So much influences from different metal genres with wicked playing. God damn this is tasty! Favorite track: Perpetual Vigil.

“Beyond Unseen Gateways” is a hymn to the blazing light, which sank into shadowy shrines, to the wild darkness which covered the debris of Ardini, to the bygone flame which enlightens the sanctum of Haldi. Delivering the blend of ancient folk melodies and traditional black metal, filled with scorching aggression and chaotic transitions, the album introduces an authentic sound and a spiritual journey of mysteries untold. Each song is an indivisible part of a grand ode which explores the height of the Urartian domain and the esoteric knowledge of pagan mysticism.

May the gates of genesis reopen and herald forth an epoch of exaltation anew”.

Ildaruni Armenia

Ildaruni represents a blend of relentless, intense Black Metal and ancient folk melodies, forgotten from times immemorial. The lyrical themes explore the height of the Urartian domain, through the cognitive machinations of a bygone age and the esoteric apprehension of ancient pagan occultism. The ominous flame now burns stronger and the band is set to unleash its long-waited cryptic incantations. ... more
