Anyway, I will officially open 2021 with my first album – Altered Dead. In tune with the general atmosphere of the 2nd year of Covid, when the virus has evolved and is more terrifying.

Ever since Behemoth switched to playing black metal that’s more atmospheric/symphonic/dramatic/cinematic………, Inferno has been relatively quiet. It was not until this Azarath project that
Blightmarch is the debut album of Chainsword, a death metal band from Poland. A beautiful colorful cover, with music to match the visuals. Chainsword did not hide the effects of Bolt Thrower on him.
