Review

Been a long time since I enjoyed the hell out of this band's sophomore album The Delphic Doctrine. I am not disposed to like any kind of industrial or electronic flavors in my metal, but with this band it is more of a slight seasoning rather than anything more. Tristwood definitely play a fast, modern style of Black Metal with a buzzing guitar sound and machine-gun drum work, but they layer it all with samples and a lot of effects that compress the music into a bleak, hostile assault of sound. When Anaal Nathrakh do this kind of shit, it turns me off, but what Tristwood are doing works for me, probably because despite all the extra effects, their songwriting is solid and not a blur of attention-deficit jerking around. I am glad to see this highly individual band is still doing what they do.
