Getting into these guys alot. Black Metal band from Germany. Lot of cool lyrical themes (WWII, etc)
While I'm sure there's gonna be a slew of "Oh, generic black metal woohoo" well, cause this is one band ass band.
The singer's stage presence is incredible, very black metal. His voice too is IMO the quintessential black metal voice. dead, cold, grim. He looks kinda scary at 0:20 too lol

The fact that the guitarist / drummer don't play painted shows that it's a personal thing, not a gimmick. Cool.

one of my favourite black metal bands, out of the "new" black metal! NAVIGATOR = simply one of the most grim, evil, earthshattering, misanthrope records out there.
my favourite track:

that all said - Iblis, their singer, left the band - the new one can suck it.
