Black metal has been around for many years. It has evolved in the course of time and isn’t what it use to be. But when we think of the genre a few artist names come to mind. For many of us we can agree that ABBATH has left his mark in black metal history. With a 25 year long career, several albums and tours, he has shaped and influenced the scene in many ways. Over the last year he has ventured on solo after the departure of Immortal. Its been made it clear that he is here to stay and the future looks bright. The band has recently released their new self titled album. It is very beautiful and very classic black metal album. It is amazing to see such a visionary continue to create music after being in the industry for so long. We don’t come across incredible artists like this anymore he’s become much more than just a singer over the years a persona some might say.
