Well, fuck, we knew we’d feel guilty about having some fun at the expense of Ukrainian metal band Semargl in our post a few days ago about their latest video, and sure enough: The band was nice enough to leave a comment on our MySpace page complimenting our post.

Gotta hand it to ’em for having a sense of humor about themselves (and about us). And the truth is, we’ve had that song “Credo Revolution” stuck in our heads for days — so much so that we started listening to samples from three other tracks off the band’s new album that are streaming on their MySpace page.

It’s a mix of divergent styles — some death metal, some groove-oriented power metal, some hard rock (as on “Credo Flaming Rain” — with guest vocals supplied by Nera (Darzamat), who’s pictured above with the band). This is definitely not the kind of thing we usually listen to here at NCS — but confession is good for the soul, and we confess that we’ve now ordered Ordo Bellictum Satanas.

Not sayin’ you should, just sayin’ we did.  We’ll probably feel guilty about that too.

  1. Nothing wrong with metal that sounds fun, which I think fits with Semargl. Sure, it may go against everything kvlt, as if the other elements they’ve put in aren’t enough to turn the troo against the band. You don’t always have to be grim, brutal, dark and evil to be a good metal band, regardless of where you fit in with the genres, sub-genres and clusterfuck labels.

    Not sure if it’s to get material, but listening to what’s on their Mypsace profile, it’s a consider. “Credo Flaming Rain” sounds like a keeper.
