A band with a pretty strange name, Tangorodrim hail from a pretty uncommon place for extreme metal: Israel. This is not a sophisticated, symphonic, progressive or even less a Viking type of Black Metal, far from it! Justus Exfide Vivit should be considered, in its short span (28:52), as a work of unpolished and straightforward Black Metal with a bit of a punk attitude. The sound production is actually not bad even if the guys included feedback and similar electrical sounds in their structure. This last one is quite simple, repetitive with occasional catchy juicy riffs.

A good point for them is the pace that can decrease from its usual fast mode to a doom mid/slow one in a couple tracks. You can hear some calmer passages with clean riffs while other moments are more psychedelic and wicked. Harmonious tremolo picking brings an added melodic touch to the overall feel.

Not bad nor great, just simple kicking Black Metal being described by the label as: "raw alcohol-fueled Black Metal colliding violently with disgusting punk rock". Of the six tracks, I kind of enjoyed: No Light, The Wolves are Also Coming...and the title track.
