Nokturnal Mortum-NeChrist (1999)

1999 album from the Ukrainian pagan horde of Nokturnal Mortum. As always, this is a very solid, epic, atmospheric, overall amazing, black metal album. This album, however, starts to show hints of the direction that Nokturnal Mortum was soon to go in, more openly embracing their native Ukrainian folk instruments and music. Highly recommended. Oriana Productions.

Again, fast and aggressive material, but more influenced with traditional music (native, means Ukrainian). More than amazing battles between flutes, drumbles and some other folk intruments and full or hatred black metal. Contains supreme version of Peruns celestial silver song, which originaly appeared on Goat horns album. Lot of eastern bands are following the steps of Nokturnal Mortum, especially in the way of Nechrist.
