Hollenthon appreciation

Cross-posting from the BTBAM board since I realized that most of them would not show the proper level of love. By the way, what's up DMD? Been awhile.

"Hollenthon, symphonic/folk death metal from Austria. I'm sure some of you are familiar with these guys, but I didn't find a thread on this board.

I've had their albums on my computer for awhile and listened to them a little circa 2008, but never gave them the full chance they deserved. Now I'm kicking myself for waiting so long, Hollenthon rules.

Think Therion, Septic Flesh, with a little bit of Dimmu Borgir (the good parts). Symphonic Death Metal at its finest. Anyone interested in a full length can PM me. Fun fact, Hollenthon grew out of the bizarre death metal band Pungent Stench. The same sort of unorthodox approach to music is found here.

From their most recent album (strange video, but great song):


Live video


From an older album, With Vilest of Worms To Dwell


These guys are currently one of my favorite bands. Hope you enjoy."

I tried listening to the first video and it sounded cheesy as hell. Taking it out of a metal context I can imagine the melody being in a song by somebody like Beyonce. I'm not into symphonic metal at all though.

Check out the first 40 seconds of Y Draig Goth before you write them off completely. It's an older song, maybe more your thing.
