Nehëmah - Light of a Dead Star

Genre: Black Metal
Country: France
Year: 2002
Label: Oaken Shield

Nehëmah is an enigmatic black metal entity from France who just so happen to crank out some of the best black metal you've ever heard. The atmosphere is all-encompassing, plunging everything around you into a mystical night-realm, shifting subtly from dark, to evil, to sorrowful, to arcane, to epic, and at times, all at once. This is one of those bands that manages to play a style that has been done a million times and somehow breathe their own life into it and really make it their own. Nehëmah is easily one of the best black metal bands out there, and this was their spectacular pitch-black full-length debut, a great place to begin your journey into their world. Definitely not one to miss.

For fans of early Darkthrone, early Satyricon, Burzum, and Epheles.
