This is the debut for Evohe, yet another pagan BM band from France and signed to the mighty Oaken Shield records. France really seems to have a good Black metal scene going, with monoliths like Nehemah and Himinbjorg leading the fray, so it should be no surprise that this is a good CD.
It's really hard for me to pin down a sound for Evohe. They play fast, with lots of Darkthrone-style blasting, but they also have a melodic edge that reminds me of no one so much as old Dissection. In fact there's no complaint to level at this one besides that fact that it's pretty generic Black Metal, and doesn't do anything new or unexpected. Evohe play a solid, sometimes downright catchy style of BM (dig the very cool "Drawn In Fire"), but aside from being enjoyable, not much sticks out as very individual. So I put these guys down under good, solid Black Metal, but they don't really have much in the way of their own identity. Fans of the genre, and of the French scene, should have no complaints about this album at all.
