This is definitely the album that's grown on me the most over the year.

When I first sat down to listen to this a few times through back in Feb/Mar, it felt pretty average to me. But now, at the end of the year, Bloem is striking a different chord in me. It's gorgeous, and really forward-thinking atmospheric black metal, and I think I love it!

2020 MUST HEAR ALBUM #30

Well damn, I'm hearing this late but better late then never I guess.

'Bloem' is absolutely beautiful, in fact it may be the most beautiful, lush and serene black metal album I've heard in recent memory, I think the cover says a lot about how the music sounds so if you're in the mood for some really atmospheric and oddly uplifting black metal, then Fluisteraars have you covered.
