Active since late '90 Black Flame is one of the most important occult black death metal band in italy.
"Necrogenesis: Chants From The Grave" is the sixth full-length album released on Dusktone and represents the highest peak of their career offering eight tracks of an indescribable violence, technique and darkness in music.
Although those tracks are shot through with moments of dark majesty and crushing black death metal riffage, BLACK FLAME's sound is about as extreme and as technical as it gets within the realm of extreme music, with tendency towards total sonic overload that'll test the most ardent necro and satanic-addicts
This new album has moved deeper into stranger and more sharp realms of demonic death metal, this is seriously heavy stuff and ain't no fun, that's for sure. Fans of most radical sounds will find much to enjoy here. All others, beware...
It has been recorded by Federico Pannazzato (Death SS) at the Music Ink Studios (already producers of the last album of Official Opera IX)
BLACK FLAME has released albums on various important labels like Forces of Satan Records, Worship Him Records and Avantgarde Music.

Whatever sub genre you want to place this in, it’s a very mature and fairly depressive album with no weak points. I always prefer albums with great drummers, and the drums here are excellent. Another standout for year end lists. Metallurgical Fire

Alma is fantastic, a perfect convergence of pagan and atmospheric metal. The energy and beauty on display here are breathtaking. This will be up there with Panopticon for repeat listens in my collection. Metallurgical Fire
"Curse These Metal Hands" parlays the UK bands' chemistry into a record which—for all its tinnitus-inducing ferocity and elegiac arrangements—practically drips with transcendent joy. Bandcamp Album of the Day Aug 18, 2019
