Prog Reviewer
5 stars Hail Spirit Noir's psychedelic black metal on Pneuma was an intriguing experiment; their tripped out psyche-prog blackened rock on Oi Magoi is the explosive result. A somewhat weightier album than Pneuma, running around 10 minutes longer, and it feels like a good judgement call on the band's part because their sound is genuinely richer and stands up to closer and more intense scrutiny here. Transcending Bizarre? is these guys' main musical port of call, but when this purported side project is turning out material of this quality, and of an originality on a level that could define a whole new subgenre of black metal, it's clear that Oi Magoi are worth keeping a close eye on.
Warthur | 5/5 |
