I’ve had another review published at Summoning Spirits, for the split between Winterfylleth and Drudkh.
“The vinyl format is perfectly suited for split releases, giving each band a side each. It’s more common among smaller, more obscure acts, and some genres are largely built upon the split format (such as grindcore). To have two black metal heavyweights release a split record is pretty rare, but Thousands of Moons Ago / The Gates, from England’s Winterfylleth and Ukrane’s Drudkh, is worthy of note not just because it’s not the kind of thing that happens everyday. As would be expected of two bands with such strong character, the music, a selection of covers that shows some of the bands’ respective influences, more than speaks for itself.”
