The Streams of Terror

Rated 3.67/5 (73.33%) (6 Votes)

This is a massive double album from Russian one-man band Misanthropic Art. MA are one of those one-man Slavic acts that is so productive it almost makes you ill, with 9 full-length albums in 15 years of existence. As you would expect, this is murky, blasting Black Metal with some rather furious guitar playing and the whole mix producing this dark wave of sound that crushes out at you, with no one instrument or sound predominating. This has a good, visceral sound, and a dark atmosphere, but all these songs sound quite a lot alike, so I'm not sure why we needed two discs full of them. Disc two does get a bit more into an almost industrial sound at times, with a more heavily processed recording job that just makes it sound all crammed together and noticeably worse than the more organic sound of the first disc. Interesting, but not compelling.
