(Andy Synn reviews the just-released new album by New Jersey’s Death Fortress.)
Following the release of their debut album, Among the Ranks of the Unconquerable, New Jersey triumvirate Death Fortress quickly became one of my favourite Black Metal acts of the modern era.
Heck, I’d even go so far as to say that they’re one of the very best Black Metal bands ever to come out of the USA at this point.
As a result, my expectations for this, their third full-length album, are practically sky-high, and I’ve been champing at the bit to get my hands on it ever since it was announced.
So, now that the album has finally appeared online (with surprisingly little fanfare), it’s time to see whether the third time is (still) the charm.
