This sounds like Black Metal played by a polka band. I’m not joking. Surprisingly, it’s really quite enjoyable in the end. Fans of Finntroll and Ulver-styled strangeness will embrace this. Were it not so brutal and percussive, it could be a soundtrack recording of some kind. It certainly has atmosphere.
This is a six-track long song, a la Edge Of Sanity’s Crimson (but not as epic). There is also a DVD in the package, however it is limited edition, and may be sold out before this sees print.
Its stark Norwegian attitude snarls through every melody. At times creepy, and always heavy in some sense or another, it seems destined for cult greatness of some sort. This should be pursued.
