The Haunted North - Black Flag Flying

The Haunted North is a quartet formed and raised to keep pure metal alive and kicking in the next decade, and they already have a multitude of original releases to their name. Their album "Monster" is as intense, poetically angst-filled, and musically brilliant as any of the great power metal albums from a bygone era. The same goes for its follow-up - the deeply provocative album "Songs of the Dead".

This is their new single, called Black Flag Flying. The song starts with a tasty guitar riff exploding in a very groovy part where we can notice the production quality and the sound, perfect for the genre. The vocals are intense and inspired and I love the intensity of the chorus. Very interesting is also the instrumental break at 2.32 with a great rhythm section in evidence. Black Flag Flying is a no-frills song, catchy and intense, well performed by the band and with a great sound.
