Schammasch – Hearts Of No Light (Prosthetic)

The Bible, I have learned, mentions a trumpet blast or rather multiple blasts performed by angels announcing the apocalypse, preceding the resurrection of the dead and the return of God to Earth. The angel on the cover of Schammasch’s new… Continue Reading →

Dysangelium – Death Leading (W.T.C.)
