Daily Noise: Shroud – Chaos or Death

Reviewed today this would be passed over as ‘generic’ (I think it was at the time too). Vintyr discovered this, and it’s the sharp guitars and atmosphere that remain with you. DARKTHRONE influenced for sure, especially on the opening song Hole of Need; but it retains a memorable identity of it’s own.

Peace is only reserved for those
who know the blade of our wrath
because he expects that the small illusion
will totally extinguish

SHROUD only released this album. Smaug returned to PRIMIGENIUM and Asath Lug Beelzeb formed BEELZEB a year later.
