what is this crap? if you're going to listen to british death metal, don't waste your time with any band other than bolt thrower...

all hail mighty Bal Sagoth! Supreme Kings of True Britannic War Metal! Dynamic, searing, pulse-pounding death/black metal infused with dark orchestral soundtrack like keys/synths. Imaginitive, intelligent fantasy lyrics based around then Antediluvian World created by singer Byron. Open minds should check this wonderful band out. Close-minded thralls back out! This is genre-expanding, one-of-a-kind dark metal.

(as the above guy) great band, but this not their best. "battle magic" and "the power cosmic" are absolutely great. must hear for death metal freaks.

From: Ironhorse Date: March 25, 2004 at 6:34
Their first two albums are amazing, after that they went a bit soft.

Bal Sagoth isn't death metal. It's black metal, no contest. They are awesome, and their best CD is Starfire Burning Upon the Ice Veiled Throne of Ultima Thule. Perhaps their first album is death metal, but not any of the rest. Staight up epic blck metal

My little stupid animal who's calling itself "drakkar", I don't must add anything, because lord ebonfyre has said in a few sentences all about mighty 'Sagoth. Bal-Sagoth is more avant-garde and combines many thinkable genres in their album-history. Death-/Black-Metal isn't really the classification. It's more Epic/Speed/Avant-Garde-Metal with some lovecraftian aspects and Conan the Barbarian-similarties. It's one of my favourite band and it's an original and has their own clone bands! -A teutoni
