Tangorodrim are from Israel, of all places, and this is their debut album. Ignoring the essential oddity of an Israeli Black Metal band, this is actually a pretty cool disc. Now this band is certainly not doing anything new, and in fact bands like this as why we have the term 'Darkclone', as their worship of mid-period Darkthrone is so evident you could see it from outer space. So this disc is largely a rehash of ideas Fenriz had fifteen years ago, but the guitar tone is a nasty, broken-glass bellow and the vocals are actually pretty good. So while Tangorodrim may be derivative, at least they are doing it right. At less than thirty minutes, I can't recommend this all that highly, but for ugly, nail-spitting orthodoxy this is a good bet.
