STREAMING: Ensnared “Dysangelium”

May 8, 2017

Now, known as Ensnared, the Swedes have taken what they learned on the fiery path with Gravehammer into new depths of darkness, where the horns of Hell blare violently and incessantly, where the air is insufferably hot and smells of brimstone cooking in the vast ovens of the underworld.
