Vorkuta are an interesting band from Hungary who play a badly-produced, sort of melodic style of Black Metal. This is pretty slow-paced, with no real blastbeats to speak of. I'm fine with that, but if you aren't going to go for speed then you have to have a great guitar sound and some good riffs instead. Vorkuta have some good riffs, but their guitar sound sucks, and I don't mean in the good way. This is a disturbing trend I have noticed with BM bands lately. C'mon, if you can't get a deep production, at least get a hissing, spitting, virulent guitar tone that sounds like somebody taking a weedwhacker after a waxed comb. This disc just has a round, fuzzy guitar sound with no bite to it. The drums are pretty lame, and the vocals are a decent if uninspired scream. I like the atmosphere on this disc, but the production is lame – not 'underground' or 'raw', just weak-ass. This band has an interesting sound, but they need work.
