Personal Records – 2021 – Mexico
HAGEL is from Mexico. On May 21st, 2021 they released their first CD called “Veneration Of The Black Light” via Personal Records.
Magnificent Black Metal echoes out of my speakers. Settled in the style of bands like DIMMU BORGIR, but not played as technically for a long time. Soaked in sadness and darkness, of bizarre beauty and yet enough hardness. Sometimes melodic, through keyboard passages, then again hard and brutal. But wait: this is where melodic Black Metal is celebrated. No high-speed beasts, but songs that all move in mid-tempo without being too soft. The listener is taken on a musical journey into the land of darkness and melodies that he will not soon forget. The partly sluggish riffs are kept simple, which emphasizes the aspect of the rawness and unpolishedness of the production and also shows the versatility of the band. It’s best to listen to “Veneration Of The Black Light” for yourself. You will not regret it!!!
