2 stars 'Anti-Urban' - Drudkh (4/10)

Drudkh have always been a band that advocates a return to a simpler way of life, one that discards modern day conveniences and technology in favour of what they consider to be a more fulfilling existence in nature. This two song EP 'Anti-Urban' brings their message to the forefront, and delivers an afterthought of music to fans who may want an extra dose of the atmospheric black metal style that Drudkh plays. When it comes down to musical quality however, I find that 'Anti-Urban' is a fairly underwhelming and lacking experience, and while their style is nicely touched upon here, the music never gives enough depth to be worth more than a spin or two before moving on to better things that the band has produced.

'Anti-Urban' is a two track EP, and the first of these is 'Fallen Into Oblivion', an instrumental track that mostly consists of a melancholic melody getting looped and looped. It is a pleasant melody and even beautiful, but the track does not feel as if it builds up to much more than it is from the very beginning. The drums are simplistic and the way the guitars are played seems uninspired. 'Ashes' follows the same sound that 'Fallen Into Oblivion' started, but adds some ambient black metal rasps. They are mixed so low that it might as well have been another instrumental, but 'Ashes' does flow a little better than the first track... that is, until it just cuts out randomly, and then the EP is done. Drudkh has done some incredible things, but then, there are EPs like this (and albums like the bland 'Songs Of Grief & Soltitude) which make me wonder where their heads are at sometimes.

'Anti-Urban' is not necessarily bad, but just a tad unnecessary and uninspired.

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.
