Saidan: Girl Hell 1999

Saidan, a relatively new voice in underground US black metal, released Onry II: Her Spirit Eternal in 2022, which proved to be one of the year's most underappreciated hidden gems for the genre and beyond.

Girl Hell 1999 exemplifies the band's melodic approach to gritty black metal and features an intriguing concept. Lyrically, the song refers to the Japanese horror film Girl Hell, and musically, it shows the band's intention to grasp the perversity and anguish with which the film deals.

The song's motif, its addictive melodies and imposing atmosphere are extraordinary owing to the music's impeccable volatility and overarching sense of loneliness.

Saidan continues to be fascinated by and devoted to Japanese culture, and their output is no less than superb.
