Blackened Death Metal from Sweden. In the vein of early Dissection

a lot of influences are situated on this disc; I pick up on Bathory, Darkthrone, Enslaved, Amon Amarth, Dimmu Borgir, hints of black/death on top of it all and then some. For the first two, the production is far too clean, that’s for certain; they aren’t on par with the greatest metal band in the Universe, Enslaved, and so adding bits and pieces that hint towards having been inspired by such a legendary force is going to aggravate when the band’s strengths clearly lie elsewhere – one area where I figure the band shines is when they choose to slow down, but then at other times they go for too much atmosphere without having the talent to pull it off convincingly, such sections becoming deplorably drawn outas a consequence.
