Black metal can be an incredibly diverse genre to immerse oneself in, and occasionally you can come across some incredibly well made and engaging stuff outside of the big names of the genre. Although that is not the case here, this is definitely an album worth investigating for those who have the patience to sit through a 49 minute slab of low-fi black metal. Though nominally in 7 parts, many copies (if not all) of this album when released (in 777 copies back in 2005) were pressed as one track. It flows like one, lyrically and (sort of) instrumentally.
Make no mistake, this is the more inaccessable side of black metal, where low-fi is the name of the game. The guitar sounds like a buzzsaw for the most part, and it almost progresses into drone territory through the mostly repetitive riffs that litter this albums length. Bass is basically non-existant as well, but it's still there somewhere very low in the mix. The vocals are raspy and angry sounding. Not that you'll be able to discern a word of what they're saying, Russian, English or otherwise. It's just an added effect to accompany the aggressive music style.
Effective yes, but after 49 minutes, very deadening and pretty taxing unless you're a fan of the really low-fi style. It's definitely an interesting release and will likely strike up a few fans here and there, so for rarities sake alone, if you find it, buy it for curiousities sake. It's not the best album/song in the world, but I've certainally come across worse in this genre.
