Sielwolf - _Metastasen_
(Van Richter Records, 1995)
by: Gino Filicetti (
If there is one thing that I don't like in this world of ours, it is noise; pure, unstructured, white noise. About all I can say with regards to this album is that it is below mediocre and unfortunately meets the above criteria. From the intro of the first track, till the end of the album, I did not find one aspect of this recording inspired in any way. The vocals throughout this album are distorted to the point of absurdity, and that is when you can actually hear them above the rest of the unintelligible interference. One song, 'White Trash', starts out with a sample (there may be more, but I couldn't make them out if there were), and then proceeds into a guitar riff (gasp! guitars! just when you thought they were taboo!) that I thought was kind of cool. That is, until I realized it was a stolen Fear Factory riff! All I can say is that this band needs a major overhaul if they want to get anywhere. I may not be the biggest industrial fan, but my gut tells me that this stuff would go over even worse with a fan of the genre.
