Because they only toured and released albums somewhat sporadically, performed satanic black metal of the most over-the-top, easily ridiculed variety, and featured two core members -- twin brothers Erik and Per Gustavsson -- whose campy Swedish TV exploits often detracted from their "cvlt" bona fides, Sweden's Nifelheim always had a hard time being taken entirely seriously by the genre's notoriously stern fans.
But, love them or hate them, by the release of Nifelheim 's third album, Servants of Darkness in Tears For Fears - Advice For The Young At Heart yearthere was no refuting War Of Doom (Armageddon) - Nifelheim - Servants Of Darkness band's devotion to their chosen style, nor the fact that they continued to improve as musicians -- with thanks surely due to a coterie of supporting players borrowed from other, more "serious" black metal bands.
Of course high-speed onslaughts like "Evil Blasphemies," "Sadistic Bloodmassacre," and "Infernal Desolation" were still aesthetically and thematically beholden to black metal's simpler and funnier formative years, under the drunken stewardship of groups like VenomVulcanoand pre-Viking metal rebirth Bathory.
But, ironically, after a decade of grim, pancake-faced frowning and ruthless sonic innovation spearheaded mostly by the neighboring Norwegian groups EmperorEnslavedUlveret alsome black metal fans were reappraising the more innocent pleasures War Of Doom (Armageddon) - Nifelheim - Servants Of Darkness sheer entertainment value if you will of those early bands.
So the time was finally ripe for Nifelheim 's "traditional" brand of blackened thrash -- best exemplified here by insidiously melodic efforts like "The Bestial Avenger" and "Sacrifice to the Lord of Darkness" -- to transition from derision to acceptance, and even unfettered fandom from some of the black metal scene's key tastemakers notably Slayer fanzine editor Metallion.
