Filth Purity
Style: Black Metal
Release date: January 20th 2009

The Russian black metal band HATESTORM was formed in 2002, if Iím correct, and this album called ĎFilth Purityí is their debut full length.


The promo-CD Iím holding in my hands contains 7 tracks of... should we call it old school black metal. HATESTORM shifts between mid-tempo and up-tempo metal sadly with no real impact. Even after numerous spins in my player, I still feel disappointed. Except for a few riffs and rhythms ĎFilth Purity is not above average in my humble opinion.


Itís hard to believe that this band has played together for about 8 years, because this album actually sounds more like another demo release than a final product.


Another thing I just have to complain about is the production. Itís muddy and without power. Itís actually quite bad.


Well... fans of VENOM, MAYHEM and BATHORY could give this album a listen, the rest should

wait for the bandís next album.
