Old school-ish Black Metal from Norway here... This mixes raw and dirty Black Metal with a hint of At the Heart of Winter-era Immortal though a bit harsher. Diseblot is decent overall but a bit too messy at times. What the band is attempting here is a good mix of raw and atmospheric Black Metal and they make it about half way there. The raw bits are by-the-number and good enough, the vocals are pretty sick rasps and screeches – some of which surprisingly intelligible. Whenever they slip into a dark, torturous atmosphere mode, the music is there but it feels too artificial – there's a little something missing and the music just doesn't grab you, unlike what some other bands in the genre succeed in doing. That's too bad because this stuff shows a lot of potential, but it never really fully takes off, just bouncing on and off the airstrip. Next time maybe. Still worth checking out if you're into the genre.
