Well, well, what do you know. There's still rebellion in metal after all. This geezer on the other
side of the aile of the train
from Copenhagen where I sit right now just complained about the 'white noise'
that comes from my headphones. I explained to him that it is black metal and
that it's supposed to sound like that...
Anyway, family fathers who want a quiet journey aside, he's got a point. Black
metal ain't pretty, and German Negator certainly aren't either. There's death
metal in the pot, but it's still mostly black metal, thin and crisp sounding,
and 90 miles per hour with a few exceptions.
They have a tinge old earlier Dimmu Borgir, but apart from that, it's more
genuine black metal coldness that rules the day. In my book, this is an alright
release, however the straight-on black metal vocal is enervating at length and
the songs become too repetitive for my taste.
Probably a band to could be great to see live (if it's a live band at all?), but
this recording is most likely going to collect dust on my harddrive.
