VERMILIA ‘Ruska’

Sep 15, 2022 | Metal, Reviews

An noir-ish haze hangs heavy as the metal and magick prevail

Ritual and ceremony are the order of the day for Ruska, Vermilia’s latest sweeping offering. The Finish artist delivers a second full album of grandiose drama, building on a platform of pagan black metal, and pushing the melodic elements further from the shadows. Employing her native language, the vocal harmonies feature heavily, as the raw elements of Vermilia’s craft form a thunderous launch pad.

Executed with a crystalline production, and passionate fervour, an noir-ish haze hangs heavy as the metal and magick prevail.
