Pure and Cold Black Metal from Greece. Seventh album.
Misty Breath of Ancient Forests is the sound of SAD at their most Nordic and '90s: a firm FUCK OFF to modernity, both in black metal and mankind in general. Fiery is their surge and yet somehow lifeless simultaneously - or more accurately, anti-life - and so, too, do their riffing ring out with hatred and misery, both inward and outward. However, across the seven-song/55-minute duration of Misty Breath of Ancient Forests will one find SAD striking upon more epic territory, especially as the album continues, the two parts of the title track serving as mysticism-drenched gates to forgotten realms and unblemished landscapes...
Vinyl 12" LP with 12" insert.
