FLEURETY / Min Tid Skal Komme (1995)

Avant-gardé Norwegian Black Metal that's a lot more enchanting than it probably has any right to be. It punctuates the typically fast guitars with multi-layered moments of atonal beauty and lush female vocals. The drumming keeps the whole crazy ensemble from flying off into the realms of excessive weirdness. I would cite Min Tid Skal Komme as the best example of creativity given form that the entire sub-genre ever produced.
It was reissued in 2003 with a different cover and extra tracks. The extra tracks are good but they ruin the symmetry of the original release.
