Theosophy - In the Kingdom of North (2011)
As the album title suggests, this album is very close both musically and thematically to the legendary Norwegian black metal band Immortal. In fact, one would be forgiven for thinking it's Immortal's latest album. The similarities are simply uncanny in terms of sparse, hypnotic riffage and the vocalist's Abbath-like grunting. But that doesn't mean that you cast it aside for "ripping off" another band. In fact, the music is very enjoyable and should tide Immortal fans over until their next release. Until then!
