Charnel Valley are a US band who are dedicated to producing the rawest, most stripped-down Black Metal they possibly can. This is their debut full-length after a few splots and demos, and it rules.
This band isn't doing anything revolutionary, they are just doing everything right. They have a grinding, sawing guitar sound, bludgeoning drums, and glass-spitting vocals spewed over a raw but visceral recording job. Charnel Valley are not addicted to the tremolo bar, and this is much more inspired by Celtic Frost or Venom than anything more modern. An ugly, filthy, hate-bellowing gem of underground Black Metal. Do not miss.
