Mike Lamb Vorga are one of the most promising new black metal bands, and 'Radiant Gloom' is a beautiful debut that hints at truly great things to come. Favorite track: Argil.

Arrogant Bastard You like black metal, you like this.
Vorga come out swinging with brass knuckles – a musical misanthropy pummeling at a volatile pace. Paired with some stellar artwork and a great logo, this debut EP is a very promising sign for the future of Vorga and the black metal genre. Favorite track: Divine.

Rick Tilley "This is precisely the type of Black Metal I love. Not everything flies out of the speakers at 100 mph and with echoes of early Bathory, no higher praise is necessary. I'm VERY impressed with Vorga and "Radiant Gloom". Beautiful artwork too!"
9/10

9/10 - "The band avoids the stagnant trap of blastbeat singularity to which so many black metal bands descend." - The Metal Geek
themetalgeek.com/radiant-gloom-vorga-2019/

9/10 - "There is hardly any weakness here and "Radiant Gloom" can actually be described as a mix of the typical influences of Gothenburg-Death and Nordic Melo-BM ala Catamenia or Old Mans Child." - undergrounded.de

8.5/10 - "An outstanding debut we recommend to listeners who are passionate about new and unique approaches to extreme metal but without wanting to miss out on melody, the cosmic expanse and atmospheric glory." - Streetclip

"Vorga’s “Radiant Gloom” is hyper-charged with vividness and it is hard to resist its charm even after the first playthrough." - Support Black Metal
supportblackmetal.com/vorga-radiant-gloom/

"In a music genre that several people consider as already saturated, it’s always a pleasure seeing the birth of excellent bands like Vorga, shutting those unbelievers up with huge dosages of talent, hard work and loyalty to the foundations of Black Metal, with Radiant Gloom representing just their first of many steps in the right direction, no doubt about that." - The Headbanging Moose

"A black metal band not trying too hard to be kvlt and instead creating some great songs with a superb tone to them. This is hopefully going to lead to a bright future for them, and I look forward to more." - The Killchain
thoseonceloyal.wordpress.com/2019/03/05/review-vorga-radiant-gloom/

"A core of seething, raging darkness can be felt in the delivery of these tracks, augmented by the melodic enhancements that bulldozer out of the speakers like electrified feral aggressors." - Indy Metal Vault
www.indymetalvault.com/2019/02/25/short-sharp-shock-30-a-blackened-parade/

"With some EPs you are happy that the playing time is up, Vorga is typically such a band that knows exactly how to create the opposite, because I can easily enjoy an entire album of this." - zwaremetalen
zwaremetalen.com/albumrecensies/vorga-radiant-gloom

"The members from band performs faster then we can expect of other similar black acts. There’s no doubt, that this is a very interesting EP for analyzing, and in many aspects different from other usual genre’s editions." - Time Machine Music

"Vorga communicate to us with conviction and ability how much black metal is able to regenerate itself in a constant way" - MetalEyes
