Mitch Mitcherson This was the first Dark Descent release I heard and it’s still good. Truly cavernous before cavernous was a buzzword. Favorite track: Revenant.

wayne-the-devil This band is just flat out cool. Death Metal is the main template but Their style makes this and their second album stand out among the masses. Just plain kick ass!!! Favorite track: Revenant.
StargazerIV thumbnail
StargazerIV Imagine you're dungeon crawling, and in mid-combat a wind sorcerer extinguishes your lantern and then proceeds to shout at you in a cavernous, dungeon-shaking voice. A vortical, and claustrophobic descent into madness. 10/10 brilliant Finnish blackened death metal masterpiece.
"Ave, Satan. My lantern in the dark" Favorite track: From the Ruins.

After letting the dust of their acknowledged 2011 EP settle, Finland's LANTERN have returned to deliver a new, far more epic slab of dark and atmospheric death metal performed in the ancient vein. LANTERN's debut album "Below" is a relentless plunge into the unfathomable darkness these compositions are born of, presented in the band's unique style of carefully crafted yet filthy and morbid metal. Compiling seven strongly distinct macabre tales and covering thirty-eight minutes, "Below" is a definitive statement of a band in top form and demonstrates that death's not dead.
