Usually, one-man Black Metal bands are on the "raw" side of the pond, but this is highly polished and slick material with a definite emphasis on sharp, technically proficient guitar work. Now there is room for a wide variety of approaches in the Black Metal spectrum, but I really do ask for some kind of mood or feel to be present, and this just leaves me cold. It is very well played and produced and put together, but there is not a moment of inspiration or excitement to be found anywhere. You can’t point to anything wrong with it, but it never catches fire, and feels extremely calculated and with a definite emphasis on technicality over any kind of actual feeling. So, while this sounds like Black Metal, in reality it displays a level of artificiality that is close to the antithesis of it.
