Ooo, here’s an oddity. This is the debut full length by Quebec based black metal band Maeskyyrn, but I have to say it doesn’t at first sight seem to fit in with the stuff I usually listen to from that productive scene. For a start the song titles and lyrics are in English… But a fair few of their social media missives are. And they have played live with those other bands so clearly they fit in nicely.
