GOLGATA – TEMPEL ( Review by Varg The Mighty )

Today’s review is of Swedish Black Metal band Golgata’s second album, out on November 30th.
The album starts with a really good title track that reminds of purely classic Swedish Black Metal, but as the album continues, there’s a sonic shifting into a more atmospheric concept.
There is a constant reminder of Dungeon Synth on some intros, some Viking Metal like early Kampfar on songs like “Manspegel” or “Du Stod Vid Min Grav” and finally some hints of progressivity on the last songs that sounds a bit like modern Enslaved, but much darker and faithful to Black Metal. The album really sounds like if it was from the 90s, even if has some distant hint of modernity. With some really good drums, deep complexity based on simplicity and great vocals, this album may be enjoyable by classic and modern fans of the genre, especially by anyone who enjoys Swedish Black Metal.

I recommend this to fans of classic Swedish Black Metal, Viking Metal, Atmospheric Black Metal, Ambient Black Metal and Progressive Black Metal. My rating is of 9/10.
