Hold tight. Today we delve into the world of BLVGTH, an international black metal ensemble whose audacious fusion of untamed resonance and radiant lyrical narratives encapsulates the quintessence of the primordial monomyth within its debut EP, “From Behind the Frosted Sun.”
Established by distinguished Argentinian guitarist and composer Lucas Wyssbrod (Monovoth, MOSTRO, Golden Cannibal) and esteemed vocalist, author, and performer Lindsay O. (Coma Cluster Void, Eyes of Perdition, Persistence), the EP narrates the odyssey of an ethereal figure journeying through the depths of the cosmos to unveil concealed enigmas.
Catering to fans of Darkthrone, Dimmu Borgir, Ved Buens Ende, and Emperor, the timeless endeavor of traversing the supernatural realm to decipher the mysteries of human existence has long captivated creatives and seekers alike.
Despite the challenges often encountered along this path into the unknown, the inner radiance of authenticity imbues the quest with purpose, shedding light on the obscure.
It is within this context that we encounter the music of BLVGTH, a courageous and innovative exploration of the primal myths, drawing inspiration from early black metal pioneers while infusing their sound with evocative and heartfelt performances.
