1 stars "Black Snow" is the debut demo by Norwegian black metal act Fleurety. The demo was released in 1993.

The music is very primitive black metal with some very distinct sounding vocals. The high pitched squeals by Alexander Nordgaren is surely an aquired taste and if you ask me they are quite the challenge. The demo features three tracks where "Descent Into Darkness" and "Profanations Beneath the Bleeding Stars" are black metal songs while "Mortuus Est Dei Filius" is a short song with acoustic guitars. A kind of bridge between the two heavy tracks. The pace is generally slower than on most black metal releases.

The musicianship is imature and the sound production is very lo-fi and noisy.

"Black Snow" put Fleurety on the map but itīs not a very succesful release to my ears. The songwriting is imature, the sound production barely listenable and the distinct sounding vocals are honestly quite the turn off. I seldom rate anything with 1 star but this is too amateurish to receive a higher rating.
