This is the full-length debut from NY-based Black Metal band Veligore. This band has apparently only been in existence for a very short period of time (like, this year) and this is their first recorded work. It's a nice little package, despite being self-released, and has a cool underground look to it.

This looks more underground than it sounds, as the recording is pretty clear and sharp, and the guitar sound is uneven. On some songs, like "Carpaty" the sound is feeble, while "Werewolf's Dungeon" sounds pretty badass. The bulk of these songs seem to be instrumentals, which is not really bad, but the vocals are perfectly good, so I don't know why they didn't use them more. The riffs are OK - nothing really epochal, but they work. The songwriting is a bit thin, relying on repetition a bit too much and not really developing the musical ideas into anything enthralling. This has a feeling of a disc put together from different songwriting sources and periods, as the quality of the songs varies quite a bit. Some of them are simplistic and dull, while others show real promise. Veligore have chops, and they might make something out of themselves, but this is not an essential release or anything. Competently done but clichéd Black Metal.
