At the beginning of their career, it is only natural that a band is influenced by their idols, but in the case of France’s MERRIMACK, the influence goes so far you would almost guess they come from Sweden. And it’s not a bad thing, as their new album ‘The Acausal Mass’ proves, which the gentlemen at Metal.de describe as having a “compact, dense atmosphere, comparable to the likes of Watain or Funeral Mist, or at times even Glorior Belli”. This means MERRIMACK should definitely appeal to those of you who like their black metal Swedish and old-school.
