The cover is drawn as the music is made

 

This is one of those albums rather difficult to review. If this cd had come out 15 years ago, it would have been one of my classical outputs of my young metal years. As we are in 2005 I doní t really know if anyone needs such music anymore.  

With the possibilities to make pretty cheap and relatively qualitative recordings, this album laughs at any sound system trying to get some differentiated tones from the cd. The sound is pretty bad, the guitars are scratchy and undifferentiated, the drums almost donít deserve this name and the vocals seem to come from a deep cavern. Some call it true, and if this has been made on purpose, well it has to be respected.

I really caní t say much about the songs. As the whole thing is rather monotone. The music presented by Black Witchery can be categorized as some old school black metal, very fast, raw, evil but to my ears badly annoying. As said, for many it could be real genuine and true black metal. The music reminds me a little bit of early Impaled Nazarene (Tol kormpt norz norz norz Ėwhat a beautiful name!- can be in some ways named as far reference), with short and blasty songs that donít differ that much one from the other.

The cover is drawn as the music is made. A pencil or pen drawn goathead with a crucified Jesus and some devils slaying angels. Pretty spartanic indeed..

For me, the output of such kind of music is nowadays not so easy to digest. Especially thinking about the lots of bands, making high qualitative and original music this is one of the rather superflual outputs. But as I said, if Black Witchery did that on purpose, no one can forbid it...  

rating: 5/10
