An entertaining album of down and dirty Black Metal played with evil intent and reverence for the first wave pioneers like Venom and Celtic Frost, as well as obvious influence from second wave luminaries like Mayhem and Satyricon. All that said, this is not as awesome as it would like to be because a lot of it is just too stodgy, and never breaks out of the groove to do anything really exciting. This band sounds most inventive when they slow down, but they are most compelling when they play faster. Despite the old-school vibe there is a sort of proggish feel to this in places, and it serves to interrupt the feral vibe. Craft play hard and mean and ugly, but they repeat themselves a bit too much, and this renders their compositions less exciting than they could be. Entertaining, but not classic.
