UKRAINIAN BLACK METAL. C’mon people, your street cred will go through the roof (and your sex life through the floor) once you bust out in conversation that you have some UKRAINIAN BLACK METAL in your collection. It’s your ace card, a winner is you. Even better, Khors is actually good. “Black Forest’s Flaming Eyes” from their fifth album, Wisdom of Centuries, has an epic atmosphere and it’s earned, not manufactured through corny strings or horns. It’s like waves from the black metal ocean rhythmically crashing against your skull at night.
