Ill Innocence

Rated 3.13/5 (62.5%) (16 Votes)

First full length on Peaceville for this Japanese female trio.  This isn't all that much different from what could be found on "The Dawn Of...", that is doomy raw Black Metal of more or less average quality.  Unfortunately, like on the DVD that accompanied "The Dawn Of...", they let the drummer throw in a few vocal lines on "Blind My Eyes", and the result is just as horrible.  It baffles me that anyone could like those little screechy Chipmunk screams.  That alone is enough to steer clear of this.  It's not all bad, of course, but there's nothing particularly exciting to be found here.  Most of the album is is doomy, slooow mode and it's pretty boring, while the faster, more Black Metal-ish songs show a more interesting side of the band that they should really focus on.  Basically, if you liked "The Dawn Of...", then you'll most likely like this and if you didn't, then there's absolutely nothing here that'll change your mind.
