Pantheon I are a band from Norway who on the one hand are not trying to reinvent the wheel, but on the other aren't really making an effort to invent anything at all. They play a kind of Black Metal with Death touches that is hard to describe in any way besides 'generic', as there is nothing here you have not heard a hundred times before on a hundred other albums. Not to say this band is bad – they are not bad at all, but these days, having some good riffs is just not enough to hack it. Pantheon I lose out by not standing out from the crowd in any way, shape, or form. You get some decent tremolo riffing with a weak guitar sound, some rather bland rasp/scream vocals, and not much else. Pantheon I are enjoyable enough, but they are not really about anything, and their music says and does nothing that has not been said and done better by dozens of bands. Not bad, but nothing to get excited about.
