DN: 13 Years Today: Satanic Warmaster – Strength & Honour (A New Black Order)

The glare of churches burning in the night…

SATANIC WARMASTER created a modern classic with Strength & Honour. A perfectly timed resurgent raw primitive attack. Distinct riffs and CRUSHING production (especially the drums) this was a pivotal release at the turn of the millennium when it was needed (NH’s multiple reissues in 2003/4 prove the hunger!) and remains an album that returns us to the roots.
