Top 10 Albums of 2010, Number 6: Nefarium, Ad Discipulum

 

Initially reviewed here: Ad Discipulum is not –obviously?– Lawless Darkness, but to me is the supreme Black Metal statement of 2010. (Unless you’re finicky about “black metal” and the detuned guitars and vocals of Nefarium, death-metally as they may be, escape your grasp of the blackest of metals.)

It’s Paganini on blood-spattered steroids. It’s Faust learned to play electric fiddle like Charlie Daniels.

It’s great.
