Italy’s Apocalyptic Black metal band Stigmhate is set to release their new album ‘The Sun Collapse on March 26th 2012 on Bakerteam Records. Band members are mike (guitars) VVLV (drums) marco (guitars and vocals). ‘The Sun Collapse’ was recorded and mixed between Outer Sound Studios and Destroyed Studios by Giuseppe Orlando (Novembre) and the band’s own guitarist Mike, and mastered at Hertz Studios, Poland. Artwork by Malfeitor Fabban (Aborym), is phenominal!
Stigmhate is well known in the black metal underground in my words they are ” evil and oppressive”. “The Sun Collapse” has nine heavy tracks full of apocalyptic nightmares all having to do with the end of humanity. The first two tracks “Throne of eternal flame” and “Charon” are brutal and relentless. Just when you think your heart is going to explode they slow it down a little with”Gathered Of Isolation” masterful placement for this song.
Track nine “Luce” by far my personal favorite it is by one of the best songs I have ever heard. This is truly what black metal is all about! I’m very partial to black, death and doom metal so when a new release comes along in these genres It grabs my attention! Stigmhate has a similar sound to “Belphegor” or maybe “Naglfar” if you like these groups you will love Stigmhate! This is an excellent release by a band which I will keep an eye on in the future. I can not say enough good things about this band if you are into black metal buy this! If not check them out on youtube give them a chance I bet you will convert to the darkside!
