Dementia: The Dark Prophets, epic instrumental black metal

Black metal or crypto-black metal bands releasing an ambient or instrumental album has become quite a trend in the scene, to the point where almost every notorious black metal act has produced at least one ambient album.

Usually these albums suck… bad.

But for the first time, with Phantom‘s majestic Dementia: The Dark Prophets, a black metal band has successfully crafted a brilliant dark ambient album of pure evil blasphemy.

Dementia: The Dark Prophets is pure black metal madness, only it’s not technically a black metal album.

The 11 tracks on this album are all dark ambient songs, but they are very original and reminiscent of the darkest black metal you can find on albums such as Horror Phantasm or Dark Devotion.

Dementia is pure evil, get this album as soon as you can.
