Is this considered black metal?

For sure. Countess has always had their own style and identity.

Sample track goes in the same line as previous three albums. Will get the CD once it's out...

I don't like Countess, but apart from that, I don't see any hint of BM in this music. No blast, no BM atmosphere, no BM vocals. Sounds more like strange punk rock / heavy metal to me...

"No blast" - Countess has never had any fast tempo.
"No atmosphere" - Not much in the nowadays Countess maybe, but old 90's Countess albums have more atmosphere than many bands could ever hope.
"No BM vocals" - matter of taste again... and there is no fucking rule how vocals are supposed to sound!

I agree, there are some great riffs/ambiances, but the drums machin definitely ruin the whole stuff!

The Shining Swords of Hate was good at least, everything else is fucking terrible. I'll never understand how this is a "classic" band. To me it's just dry, cheesed-out, drum-machined heavy metal with really bad vocals.

Ive loved every countess album i have come across, great to hear black metal with very obvious heavy metal influences. Ancient Lies and Battle Cries is epic. total respect for countess.

His whole blackened heavy metal thing is getting tiring. The last few albums have been too similar.

I actually agree with the previous post...Blazing Flames of War to now really has been fairly boring. There are good tracks here and there but the albums just do not have the same pull. I still have to get the new one so I can't say anything about that one yet. Holocaust is the last one I really enjoyed

Also, why hasn't the band enlisted another drummer? After all these years...
