OLD "Down With The Nails"
  • Album: Down With The Nails
  • Year: 2006
  • Artist: 
  • Norway

Sharing the same musical path as AURA NOIR, but more focused on Black than Thrash Metal, the five Norwegians release their first album in force, reminding me of VENOM, SODOM, POSSESSED or CELTIC FROST. On the other hand, OLD seems to enjoy Nocturno Culto and Fenriz's support, therefore the present album is intensely promoted.

I haven't spot anything special or original in OLD's sound, solely raw Black Metal, in its brutal and aggressive shape, or, to put it this way, DARK THRONE's cadet... They probably go to concerts hand in hand, seconding that Raw Black Metal still exists, in its utter underground form, without any modern, bombastic or atmospheric elements.
