Metatron’s visit to Auswitch Birkenau in Nov set in motion the forthcoming Meads of Asphodel album, Sonderkommando. With some prose recorded on site, and all the lyrics jotted down over three days. Metatron enthuses “Auschwitz [especially Birkenau] is a cold, eerie place where death laughs and the world spins blindly past.
With this special achievement now under their belt, I have a hard time thinking that The Meads of Asphodel will remain an underground act for much longer. Fans of well crafted epic extreme metal would be well advised to seek this one out. Track Listing Sonderkommando Wishing Well Of Bones Aktion T4 Silent Ghosts Of Babi Yar
