They are currently putting the finishing touches on their debut EP, Astral Possession, which will be released on February 26, 2016.

Black Metal Friday: Nihilistinen Barbaarisuus “The Child Must Die”
  |  @   |  

One would never guess by listening to them that black metal unit Nihilistinen Barbaarisuus hail from Philadelphia. The band’s mastermind Mika Mage draws a great deal of inspiration from the folklore of his Finnish heritage. In fact, the music and artwork of Nihilistinen Barbaarisuus’ excellent new album The Child Must Die are both based on the Finnish national epic The Kalevala, a poetic book with a collection of myths and legends that occupies a prominent place in the Finnish identity, with most songs adapted directly from passages from the text.

Our Black Metal Friday selection for this week is the title track of that very record. Here below, with the official video for “The Child Must Die,” is Nihilistinen Barbaarisuus. If you like what you hear, be sure to pick up a copy of the album and help support the burgeoning U.S. Black Metal scene.
