Rated 4/5 (80%) (2 Votes)

This is the debut from Chilean band Siaskel, who use an extinct indigenous Patagonian language for their titles and lyrics. On the one hand it makes them extremely kvlt, but on the other it renders the lyrical side of their music almost meaningless, as no one can understand it.

Musically, they are a well-produced, energetic, but almost entirely typical Black/Death band. They have a solid sound, some decent riffs, and a good amount of energy, but there is not one really killer riff or song to be found. This is heavy and entertaining, but so derivative of other sounds and bands that it is almost entirely cliché.
