WATAIN LAWLESS DARKNESS reviews

Specialists/collaborators reviews

Warthur
Aggressive, straight down the line black metal which is decently produced and manages to be broadly entertaining... but which just doesn't quite feel like a keeper to me. If you're into black metal at all you already have a stack of albums that sound like this, most likely, and Watain don't show very much of a distinctive personality here. A decent enough gateway drug into the genre for those who are not very familiar with it, perhaps, but I suspect at the end of the day it is a little too by-the-numbers to impress genre devotees and not quite distinctive enough to really enthrall newcomers.
