Rated 5/5 (100%) (1 Vote)

Vrolok have a legendary rep in some circles, but I myself don't get that. This is an interesting mix of raw, Darkthrone-ish second wave BM with more depressive stuff like Leviathan, all of it spiced with some ambient sounds and industrial flourishes. Vrolok have a killer, evil guitar sound, and some of the riffs are good, but the songwriting meanders pretty aimlessly, and I didn't find much compelling about this disc. Overall I find the ambient interludes more distracting than atmospheric, and I think if Vrolok tried a little less hard to be arty they would be a better band. Interesting and a bit different, but not great.
