  • Erdve – Vaitojimas

    An album named Vaitojimas lands on the digital desk, by a band called Erdve. The first question that comes to mind is, are we dealing with Finnish black metal here?

Having only been around since 2016, the band has managed to stirr a few souls, since the debut EP has been praised by basically everyone who […]
