2 stars Experimental/Post Metal ?

Well, this ain't post metal. It is straight old style black metal. This album comes across as a cross breeding between Gorgoroth, Emperor's first album and the two first Burzum albums. Music as black as the devil's paintkit in other words. There are some subtle hints of melodies here too. Blut Aus Nord has as per usual incorporated some industrial elements too. But the musis on this album is basically straight black metal and more so here than on the first two Blut Aus Nord albums. That despite of the song titles which gave some hints of progressive elements. There are none of them here. None.

I actually think this album is pretty good. It is some of the heaviest, fastest black metal I have ever heard in my life and I know this scene pretty well. The album is best described in one word: Inferno. My main gripe is the lack of any progressive elements on this album and the lack of variation. But black metal albums like this should not have any variations. But this album is not for me.
