I think I'm going to listen to Dactylis Glomerata later, wish me luck
also if you like Messiah and haven't heard him on Mercy's Witchburner you are missing out.

Just started this band with Nightfall, wasn't sure I was liking it much at all in the first two spins but I'm really loving some of it now.

they're such an interesting band. have had at least 3 legendary vocalists in their ranks (Längqvist, Messiah, Robert Lowe), evil as fuck, thick riffs, almost as if they based their sound on the song "Black Sabbath".

Why evil? I'm not an expert but something interesting I've noticed is that a lot of older metal bands sound like the viewpoint of normal people or heroes beholding evil in terror and extreme metal is often from the viewpoint of evil. From Nightfall I thought they must be more of the former and the vocalist dresses like a priest.

oh I just meant the riffs sound sinister and evil af, not that they 'are' evil per se.
they are great at building imagery
