Bal-Sagoth - A Black Moon Broods Over Lemuria album FLAC

A Black Moon Broods Over Lemuria, is Bal-Sagoth's 1995 debut album after their 1993 demo. The album was recorded in a two-week period in June 1994, but due to label problems the album was released almost a year later. The name Lemuria comes from a hypothetical land mass in the Indian Ocean. The keyboard intro on this album was written and performed by Keith Appleton, the proprietor of Academy Music Studio, the studio where the album was recorded.

Black Moon Broods. was one of a handful of CDs that showed that Western Europe certainly did have quality bands to offer, and were not to be eclipsed by their Northern and Eastern cousins, or anything coming from the other side of the Atlantic. In comparison to their later efforts, Black Moon Broods. is by far the most organic  . In 1995, a band by the name of 'Bal-Sagoth', based in the UK, released a little Symphonic Black Metal gem titled 'A Black Moon Broods Over Lemuria'. Every song is fast paced and evenly tempo'd, giving it an energetic - and epic - feel.

Classic album from the undisputed kings of an symphonic black metal. However, this vinyl pressing leaves considerable amounts to be desired. There's a pretty decent amount of distortion near the end of each side, as a result of the volume of the cut mixed with the sheer amount of material on each side.

Hugighma
Great remaster, the drums are much more detailed, bass is punchy and the keys are spacious. However, the clarity works to the detriment of the overall keyboard sound and guitar tone, revealing their inherent flaws in the process. Definitely worth getting, and the included lyrics booklet is a great boon, with some tracks having additional notes to link them better to the overall saga.
