Swedish black metal project Blackwinds rekindles the dark flames of the early '90s on their 10-track excursion FLESH INFERNO. Bursting out of the gate with a bastardized barrage of tremolo picking and hellish vocals, tracks like “Plague Bringer” and “Enter the Pandemonium” conjure up evil spirits with a convincingly chilling tone while sheer velocity spins “Crimson Thirst” into another realm of being before the symphonic waves of keyboards catapult your ears back to hell. Blackwinds is far from groundbreaking, but does an ample job of striking a middle ground between well-produced and raw with an endless supply of wickedly nightmarish tones present to creep into your subconscious and disturb your state of mind.
