If you are a Black Metal band from Norway and you want to create something that is not instantly cliché, then you need to try pretty damned hard. Ulvhedner are not trying hard enough, and it shows. The riffs and leads on this are boring and stale in the extreme most of the time, the rest of the time, they are doing these half-assed folky little toodle-doodle parts that sound remarkably lame. The guitar sound is a waste, sounding smooth and featureless, not to mention mixed way too low. You can't hear the bass, and the drums are quite shockingly inept, so that leaves the monotonous, croaking vocals to carry the songs...yeah, not working there guys. Every time I see a new Black Metal album I think "Will this be good, or just a wasted pile of hackwork?" This is hackwork. Boring, derivative, and poorly done to boot.
