Kratornas are an odd band, being a one-man project by a dude from the Philippines who released demos for over a decade before getting a proper album out. Hell, the guy released a ‘Best-Of' compilation before putting out one single album – that's got to be a record, even for an uber-kvlt band. Finally in 2007 Kratornas released a full album with Over The Fourth Part of the Earth, and now we get the sophomore album The Corroding Age of Wounds.

Blatantly Satanic, hyperspeed Black Metal is what you get here. The riffs are rather simple, the songs are longish (5-7 minutes), and the drums are obviously a machine. I find this kind of entertaining in a way, but after three songs or so it starts to get old. The songwriting formula never varies, and the guitar sound is too weak to really be cool. Mostly what you hear is the nonstop machine-gun drum computer. None of the riffs are really good enough to justify how many times they are repeated, and none of the songs stand out from the others in the least. This is diverting, but not really what I would call ‘good'.
