Finnish black metal duo Pestilent Hex revives a special movement in black metal history, bringing mid-'90s melodic sensibilities to a new decade. Listen to album closer "Chapter VI : 'Banishment'" and read an interview with the band.
The long-running Finnish melodic death/doom outfit released a live album earlier this year that features a set of acoustic recordings and fan-selected hits. Read an interview with Juho Räihä about the performances and the release.
This classic Finnish death metal record was released thirty years ago in July 1991 and holds up still. While it wasn't the most progressive of offerings, it hits hard on a level that little else has managed to top.
