Mistigo Varggoth Darkestra
The Key to the Gates of the Apocalypses (The End Records)

By: Jeb Branin

This is a one man band doing a one track album of epic proportions. In many ways it is the ultimate black metal opera. Majestic and swirling black metal rife with melodic keys and atmospheric interludes constructed on a foundation of heavy guitars and pounding rhythms give voice to lyrical exploration of the mysteries of the universe as seen by someone grasping for clairvoyance through the black arts of sorcery and sacrifice. To the credit of MISTIGO VARGGOTH DARKESTRA there is acknowledgment that there is no answer to this mystery only questions and multiple interpretations. For fans of black metal this philosophical and religious pontificating set to music is not going to seem to out of the ordinary however for other fans of the extreme this endless fascination with the battle between the light and the dark may seem a bit trite and overdone. Fortunately this album can stand on the merits of its music regardless of the somewhat self indulgent nature of the project.
