Black Flame - The Origin of Fire

I tend to prefer my new black metal to either be folky and atmospheric, or crushing and riff-heavy.  This is the latter.  Black Flame caught my ear instantly much like Ascension's Consolamentum and IXXI's Assorted Armaments.  The vocals have that level of grit, conviction, and evil that never ceases to get me going.  The guitar work and drums are very reminiscent of Gorgoroth, which is great, but they don't strike me as being a simple clone either.  Check it out in full here.  Another relatively cheap purchase as well.
