Somewhere there ought to be a school, where those determined to be Black Metal one-man-band types can go to learn the difference between a recording that is raw and underground, and one that just sucks. There's nothing terribly interesting going on here, as this is very standard Darkclone-type second-wave BM, with the constant hammering drums, the echoey rasps, and the relentless samey flailing from the guitars. Even if there was something good on here, you wouldn't be able to fucking hear it, because the recording is not primal, or minimalist, but just bad. I was literally halfway through the first song before I realized that faint noise was not an extended intro, but the actual music, only it was so quiet I was sure it had to be a technical mistake. There's kvlt, and then there's inept.
