Where The Iblis Dwells

Rated 3.25/5 (65%) (4 Votes)

This is a pretty harsh blast of Black metal from Canadian band Anatolian Wisdom. I have been spinning this album, their debut, for over a week now, trying to find my way into it, but it's not really doing much for me. Part of it is the production job, which mixed the vocals too loud and made the guitar sound too low. There are some interesting riffs on here, but it's hard to hear them over the constant shrieking. The vox are not that great, and while we are not in Dani territory or anything, they are pretty monotonous and screechy. With a name like this, I was maybe expecting some more atmosphere or middle eastern scaling à la Melechesh, but there's really not anything like that, and Where The Iblis Dwells is a pretty straight up album. I like it pretty well, but it's not mandatory.
