An excellent American black metal album

"Through the Eyes of Night solidifies Fog's position in the up and coming American black metal sceen. They can easily hold their own against the old guard Norwegian bands in terms of musicianship. This LP doesn't have a single weak track, it is remarkable from start to finish. Fog's sound could be described as similar to the first two albums from Emperor, though Fog seems to show a somewhat more diverse sound. The album retains a distinctive black metal feel, while showing occasional thrash and death metal influences. The music is very chaotic but simultaneously atmospheric. The drumming is extremely fast but admirably controlled. Vocals by "Lord Typhus" have the typical black metal delivery and are consistant throughout the album. Fog's lyrics are focused on traditional black metal themes and are never trite or overdone. Fans of Mayhem, Darkthrone, and older Emperor will surely enjoy this overlooked USBM release."
