Excellent black metal from British Columbia, Canada, Kafirun have am updated sound of the second wave Norwegian bands, especially Mayhem. On some tracks I could have sworn it was Attila singing on De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas, but this is by no means just a copy band. Thick, evil atmosphere and well-written and performed tracks hold the torch of western black metal high! Not a throwback sound either, very modern black metal!
Favorite track: Beyond the flesh vessel.
