American black metal juggernauts Uada, unleash primal fury upon the listeners with this extremely brutal and melancholic Black metal masterpiece.
Favorite track: Black Autumn, White Spring.
From the darkness, UADA (meaning haunted in latin) emerges breathing the spirit of the original 90’s Black Metal wave. Since 2014, this Portland, Oregon four-piece has used a unique approach to combine raw black metal and spectral melodies.
April 8th 2016 manifested the release of the debut album “Devoid of Light”, it rekindles a flame and resurrects spirits from the past in pure blackness. Self-recorded by the band & then mastered by Joel Grind (Toxic Holocaust). It features the artwork of Kris Verwimp and band photography by Peter Beste.
"dark waves of guitar melody that sweep through the music like a winter gale (and sometimes drift like a grave-side mist)" - NO CLEAN SINGING
"diabolical and deep, like a better-informed and more melodic version of De Mysteriis-era Mayhem. The result scratches the infernal itch perfectly, and will hopefully be embrace by both old- and new-schoolers alike." - METALSUCKS

I will not say my usual of who & what they are - everybody knows Mgla! I should have bought this years ago but I missed it because - yes... I really am that useless :| This is a totally epic & classic album that I cannot get enough of & has very few equals, except maybe their previous! Mgla are in a class of their own & they demonstrate this here once again in each & every song! Highly recommended!!! bmurator

Originality pure, Krzysztof's creation brought an unique and new inspiration to the black metal scene. Panihida continues the glorious path of Litourgia and the album proves that you can't copy and steal concepts or ideas . ( this still has to learn the ugly thief Krysiuk). vlad1981
