Essentially comprised of the core triumverate of "Stabath", "Thorgrim", and, uh, "Gor Gho Phon", Dutch black metallers UNLORD managed three solid albums between the years 1997 and 2002, two of which being those featured here today. These guys aren't revolutionaries or anything--they stick to the black metal playbook pretty tightly--but they do it really goddamn well, delivering an unrelenting onslaught of blasting, hyperspeed drums, swirling keyboards, screechy/gargly vocals, and pleasingly dissonant guitars (check out the epic riffery present on Gladiator's "Bloodgrief") in abundance.
Do you like black metal? If the answer is "yes", the chances are higher than a collegiate tourist in Amsterdam that you'll dig Unlord. Dutch BM FTW?
