Grey Heaven Fall - Black Wisdom / support black metal
Last year was the year of black metal and many fans as well as media collectively admitted that undisputed fact. The lists of best of the best albums seemed endless hence catching up with everything that was coming out was equal to convincing one that there is a higher entity than almighty Chuck Norris. Hopefully, I won’t be punished for saying his name in vain..
