Now, I donít particularly enjoy being negative, especially not when reviewing bands that have been in play for a long time and did their share.  

In the case of Norwegian Madder Mortemís latest outing, ďDesiderataĒ, you constantly think ďthis is beginning to sound coolĒ, but, you know, it just doesnít.  

There are mad bits and there are raw bits in the bandís blend of nu-thrash and goth, but itís so disparate and fragmented that it turns out to be more annoying than anything else. And front wailer Agneteís voice easily gets on my tits for some reason. Perhaps Iím just an idiot who fails to recognise a brilliant band, but fact is that I donít get it.
