BEATRIK (ger) "Requiem Of December" LP
Requiem Of December is a perfect mixture of Black and Doom Metal. Absolutely spot on. Beatrik's second full-length release brings to mind some of the best works from bands like Xasthur, Wigrid and Forgotten Tomb that were doing a lot of good stuff when this album was released in 2005. Resemblance to the older works of Deinonychus can also clearly be heard, which is always positive in the right sense of the word.
