Gespenst (translated as "Phantom") is a new Danish act featuring (ex) members of Glorior Belli, Woebegone Obscured and Horned Almighty. On their debut album Forfald, they create an otherworldly atmosphere by fusing Scandinavian black metal with funeral doom and touches of dark ambient. 4 lenghty tracks loaded with unspeakable tension from start to finish.

The Best Batushka album so far. A Black Metal Classic!!!
There are few albums that I can listen to from start to finish without skipping a track and this is on the top of the list. You almost have to listen to the album as a whole.
Do yourself a favor and buy this album
The true follow up to this album is Krzysztof Drabikowski Панихида (Panihida). Bart's Раскол / Raskol EP is also a good follow up to this album as well just not as close as Panihida sounds.
