Hortus Animae - Waltzing Mephisto

WIth the membership of Ancient drummer Grom this Italian black metal is pushing their opus "Waltzing Mephisto" to a higher level. Their black metal is not only majestic but also orchestral and adding gothic pieces. The sound can be describes as aggressive but with melodic and suprising breaks. And with the great cover mix of Mayhem and MikeOldfield (track 8) this is a nice album. Nice outro!
