Carach Angren - Lammendam

Honestly, this has got to be ONE of the strongest debut's I have heard in the genre of symphonic black metal. I realize that is quite a statement, but I stand behind it 92.8%. Why am I so balls deep into this?
This shit it pitch black and it is a concept album based on the ghost of 'La Madame Blanche' who lived in a castle surrounded by a moat in a almost forgotten forest in the Netherlands. It's a real place and can still be visited today.

Influences can be heard, but Carach Angren successfully manage to create their own unique sound, filled with haunting atmospherics, eerie soundscapes and crushing black metal built around a strong theme. I could go on and on. But I'll spare you and spew the download link your way instead.
