“The music of Afsky is the opposite of down-to-earth, as the sound of the quartet feels like a massive stormy weather entering the city. You are shrouded by melancholy and sorrow, and you get completely hurt by frontman Ole Luk, who lives so much into the music that he too appears sad. You get sad to hear the Afsky in the right way. Disgust gives way to the feeling one can get in the body when the black dog comes to visit. This is the epitome of black metal for this reviewer ”
