Customer Reviews

Unrecognized, But Quite Good

I don't think that this album will ever show up in anyone's top ten list, but it is quite well-written and a bit of an underrated classic as far as melodic black metal goes. Light the Black Flame exists in the same realm as Algaion's first album (which came out two years prior to this and was written by mostly the same musicians): Hellenic meets Swedish black metal, but where Oimai Algeiou was a fairly dark and doomy album, this one is a bit more upbeat, taking more from stuff like early In Flames and Dark Tranquillity than it does from Dissection. There's still plenty of darkness this time around, and the synthetic drums actually sound pretty good. At the very least, they don't distract the listener. Some of the longer songs tend to drag a bit, but just when you think Vergelmer's ship is sinking, a great new melodic riff emerges from the tremolo-picked cacophony to keep them afloat. Recommended for fans of Dissection, Sacrilege (the Swedish one), Dawn, and the first three Rotting Christ albums.
