Review


The things I have to go through for you guys. It isn't much of a surprise that Dodheimsgard have produced another "avant-garde/industrial/Black Metal" album that only a bunch of holier-than-thou, pompous oh-so-open-minded metalheads will like. As a general rule, avant-garde metal is bound to suck, as only a select few bands manage to pull it off - and this one is not one of them. Now throw in some lightweight industrial elements as well as annoying vocals that flirt with metalcore and all hell breaks loose. There's metal somewhere underneath all this nonsense, and if you pay close enough attention there are in fact a few good moments, but they are always overshadowed by the garbage (no sense in sugar-coating that one) and there's just no way to really enjoy the good stuff here. This is exactly the kind of band I had in mind when I wrote the "ev·o·lu·tion" editorial a few years ago.

I don't know, maybe this is good if you listen to it under the influence of some psychedelic drugs. I'll stick to beer, thank you very much. Unless you belong to the aforementioned group of metalheads, if you see this album anywhere, run for your life.
