Reviewer: Metal-Rules.com UK Team
Ak-11 ( Avtomat – Kalashnikov:11) is a one man project forming in Australia in April 2011 by Valak F. He recorded his first demo in Russian and English and wanted to fully embrace the spirit of Black Metal! He has since moved to Germany and recorded the demo tracks at Catacomb Night Studios, with all the music & lyrics written by Valak. F himself.
From the first track it is clear this isn’t the greatest production, but this is definitely a favourite style of recording when it comes to Black Metal fans and certainly doesn’t change the quality or blackness of this album. The lyrics are dark and gritty with some great guitars and simple ‘machine sounding’ drumming. There is also use of what sounds like soundtracks, and old fashioned War sounds showing signs of past and present, ancient European pagan mythology, existentialism, emphasizing on human’s violent nature and & European brutal war history.
There is a general sound to this album, which doesn’t change throughout each song but seeing as I personally love Black Metal I never tired from hearing each track. This is not an album for all metal fans but one for those who love classic old and gritty Black Metal and not bad at all for his first official digital demo, which is free to download following the above link!
Valak F. States:
"I dedicate these songs to the might, fury & eternal victory of the infernal Battle Gods.
Under Satan's banner, the enemies of the left hand path will be forever defied, hunted down & obliterated.
