Over the last couple of months one of the musicians in the excellent Dutch black metal band Kaeck has been turning me on to underground releases from the distant past that I’d never heard (or heard of) before. His own roots in the black metal scene go back decades — far longer than my own — and I’ve realized how much I still have to learn. I’ve already devoted several of these Rearview Mirror posts to bands he has recommended, and this is another one.
The focus of this post is a Swedish band named Niden Div. 187, and specifically the only full-length album they ever released, 1997’s Impergium.
