Black Metal With Folk Metal Elements??? This Is Pretty Rad! Anti-Retreat Troops Release Album

Woah…this is an interesting take on black metal – check out Chinese black metal band Anti-Retreat Troops on their debut album entitled ‘Battle of Purifying Filthy Soil’ that includes tons of folk-metal elements as well. No joke, this is one of the most interesting takes on the “black metal” sound we’ve heard in some time. The band also calls their music RAC – which is frickin badass. Look it up.
