Myrkskog - _Deathmachine_
by: Paul Schwarz (
Attacking their craft like rabid beasts, Myrkskog succeed in producing one of the most explosive, fast and mechanistic black metal records, which is unsurprisingly strongly death metal sounding. With a chunky mountain of hard and complex drumming as its backbone and electrified walls of sheer metal guitar its tools of destruction, _Deathmachine_ slices and dices the likes of Dissection, Hypocrisy and Immortal, digests and then violently vomits forth its own steaming concoction. Crushingly powerful and with only a few minor drag points in its thirty odd minutes, _Deathmachine_ is not only a convincing step, it's also a possible stepping stone to something truly incredible.
