This is an album you should only reach for if you are in the mood for raw, pure, evil Black Metal blasting. There is nothing experimental or different about the sound of this band, and in fact pretty much every idea here is something taken from Dark Funeral or Panzer Division Marduk. But you know what? I don't give a shit. Sometimes you just want something as black and vile and blasting as human beings can make it, and this is that album. Utuk-Xul improve on the standard high speed blasting by grinding out songs that are, like, ten minutes long. You might say that's too much, but then I'd say you are a big pussy. After the intro track the album cranks up "Snake of the Abyss" and never lets up after that. It's simplistic, it's raw, it smashes relentlessly through every boundary of restraint or good taste — it's pretty much an utterly unadulterated bile-filled distillation of Black Metal, and I think it rules.
