Here's another old feature I'm bringing back under my own steam; Denial of Goat's Lest Ye Be Judged. In order to profile even more underground black metal bands, here is a scraping of promos I have received from around this blasted world. Mondvolland is one of the best things I have heard from the black metal released in 2014, but before that there are two others to get through. Read on, or don't!

Hails Balrog. Please introduce your band for the uninformed without using the words "black" and "metal".
Throne of Evil was constructed in Antofagasta Chile in late 2006. We made several presentations throughout the north of the country. During this period taking their 5 song ep "Blasphemy Salvation".; a dark and misanthropic material that talks about the hypocrisy of the Catholic church and manifests the repudiation to the weak humanity and his worldly lifestyle.
