2 stars Having established themselves as one of the more melodic and musical Black Metal artists of recent times, Ukraine's Drudkh present Anti-Urban, a short two track EP, released in 2007. Nothing in this release should come as any shock to Drudkh veterans. The melodic riffing is there, Roman Saenko's vocals are as frosty as ever, and the compositions flow evenly, albeit without too much dynamic divergence. That's my only real issue with this release, it's all fine to set an atmosphere with repetitive 'textural' riffs, but to repeat ad nauseum without any discernible artistic development leaves me feeling cold. Or maybe that was the point? Furthermore, the programmed drums feel too artificial, which is a shame considering Drudkh are usually all about natural textures and spiritually organic music.

Fans of the band will probably enjoy Anti-Urban, but don't hold your breath.
