Rated 2.5/5 (50%) (2 Votes)

Another one-man band playing harsh Black Metal. Aside from a made-up name that sounds like some bizarre political party, there is nothing bad about this, and I enjoy this CD quite a bit. You get an atmospheric 'intro' and 'outro' track, and in between a lot of generally melodic BM with a lot of tremolo double picking. There is not anything really new here, but the riffage is solid, and often better than that. The only thing I have to dock this album for, really, is that this is very familiar stuff. Here and there the guy will really rip into a good riff, like on "Vengeance", but overall this is pretty standard, with the expected raspy vocals and very muted drum sound. Lutemkrat show definite potential, and while this is pretty generic, it is also pretty damned good. This album has some very bright spots where the riffs slow down and are much punchier, and fans of the 'woodsier' forms of BM will like this a lot. A band to watch.
