Sear Bliss  

Sear Bliss has been been a mainstay in the Hungarian underground scene for well over a decade, the brainchild of vocalist/bassist Andras Nagy who formed the band back in 1993. Essentially, their style is rooted in black metal (Nagy's vocals, in particular, are classic black in nature), with some gothic undertones to give the songs a bit of a majestic feeling. The most distinguishing feature of this band, without question, is their use of horns, as they employ a trombonist as a full-time member (and previously, a trumpeter) and feature horns frequently throughout their songs. Though at times the horn interludes seem forced, they are a nice contrast, and a clear originality factor. Their inclusion has understandable turned off some, but others (this listener included) welcome their uniqueness.
