Recorded in 1998, ENTER MY MEGARON is the debut release from Dutch black metal outfit Memorial. Remaining true to the early black metal formula, Memorial’s sound is more in line with the abrasive, ritualistic motifs attributed to the primitive first releases by Immortal, Darkthrone, and Mayhem. The album’s severity provides a chilling atmosphere, which is rarely experienced in modern black metal. Displaying clearer production values than its peers, and an eerily attractive inlay booklet, ENTER MY MEGARON is an unsung classic in the annals of black metal music.
