Exekrator is a three-piece from the darkest pits of the underground of Copenhagen, Denmark. The name of the game is black metal of sorts.
promo is a combination of new material and material from the EP
ďSuperstitious MaleficiaeĒ (2004), and to be honest, you have to
be in the mood for this. Itís not pretty in any way, especially Tue
Brissonís vocals can be a pain if you donít have one of your King
Diamond days. His voice sounds a lot like the King, just not with the
same cool. The production of the songs is raw and thin, Iím tempted
to say sloppy, and itís a shame because I think that a lot of the
bandís ideas would work with a nice and fat production (and a real
drummer?!?). The most interesting tune among the four new ones is
definitely ďEx DraconisĒ, a seven minutes piece with greater
variation both musically and in Brissonís use of his voice.
Ironically, the older material from the EP stands out fresher and stronger than the new, even though the production/mix is well-nigh horrendous for a release that has actually been put out on vinyl.
is looking for a permanent drummer, so give them a call if you know
how to beat the skins.
