Wow, I wasn't sure it was possible for Black Metal to be quite this generic and unremarkable. It's not that this is bad, but it sounds exactly like 50,000 other bands and presents nothing to distinguish itself at all. You get speedy tremolo riffs, a muffled production job, and a lot of screeching. Bands like this are the reason we have the term 'darkclone' as this is an effort to ape the Second Wave sound to the nth degree. It succeeds only by dint of doing nothing that has not been done to death. Competent but meaningless.
