Xtreem Music brings up another Spanish band, this time Black Metal (anti-human BM, actually) in the vein of early Darkthrone with some hints of speedsters such as Marduk and Dark Funeral here and there. There really isn't that much to say about this - the guys play it relatively safe, keeping close to their influences but they only achieve this at the musical level and fail to level it up to give the listener a run for his money: The album doesn't leave much of a trace once it's over. The music is played adequately, the vocals quite fitting overall - a mix of screeches and more desperate raspy vocals, but there isn't much substance behind it all, sort of an empty feeling (but surely not in the way the band could have intended.) The atmosphere is lacking even though they're trying here and there, it's just not consistent. Taking into consideration that the best song here is a Darkthrone cover and not one of the band's originals... There are still a few good moments, such as the title track as well as "Storm of Bullets" which opens up on the sound of tanks advancing - total Darkthrone worship here. The intro is way too long for such a short release - it starts off well but it gets old fast and you end up impatiently waiting for the action to start.
Those who can't get enough of early Scandinavian Black Metal, especially a blend of the aforementioned bands, may find something of interest here. An honest and relatively good display of raw, low-fi black metal, but not great. I think there's potential in here though, if they can give more feel to their music. The end.
