Sorgeldom are a Swedish band that play a variety of Black Metal that I think is supposed to be 'depressive' but that I would call just 'long'. This band is addicted to repetition like it was sweet, sweet heroin. The first song is like 4 minutes of them playing the same acoustic riff over and over and over get the idea. Then they get to the first 'real' song and it is them playing pretty much the same riff for 12 minutes. Not that the riffs are bad, they are actually pretty good, and the production turns them into freezing blasts of wrath with a thin but harsh guitar sound, overdriven to the extreme. I'll start out really liking a song on here, and then they will just...keep...repeating it until I am annoyed and hit the skip button. If this band could either tighten up their songs or introduce some variation, then we'd have something worth hearing. As it is, we have something worth hearing once.
