The second album of these English actually shocked me indeed! If we take a look at it, from a stylistic perspective...I have no doubts in telling it is out of any comparison and definitely one of a kind! As far as the execution is regarded, there is no reproach to be made! About the sound... well, would it be Black Metal or not?! I think it is rather too knotty and out of any patterns to be labeled that easy...! From time to time I can hear some solos of progressive guitars, traditional Oriental touches, imposing clear voices... followed by primitive guitars and angry screaming vocals on a sick noisy and confusing background. Perhaps it is an album surpassing any sphere of imagination... more than an Avantgarde one... in lack of classical valences... Thus I find difficult to frame it somewhere... but I definitely wouldn't say Black Metal! This is a real challenge and I believe you should try it by all means... at least because of curiosity! As an inconvenient I would mention that the stylistic variety may risk to confuse the listener and thus to finally lose him on the way!
