Horna - _Hiidentorni_
(Solistitium, 1997)
by: Andrew Lewandowski (3 out of 10)
What have we got here? Whoa Satan, it's a mediocre black metal disc! After listening to the whole album, I wanted more and I couldn't get enough! I wanted more riffs repeated over and over and over again until they lost all of their meaning! That "variety" concept has been beaten to death, why not completely avoid the trend? Anyway, isn't the whole point of black metal to invoke suicidal thoughts, and doesn't mindless repetition accomplish this better than anything else? And dude, listen to those vocals! Damn, those are grim, barely perceptible, and damned annoying all at the same time! I'd like to see a "good" band succeed at that mix! And don't fucking rap and techno bands try to suck a good drum sound from their production? Fuck black music! Hell, why not provide the antithesis: a tin can collision? In summation: this is avoidable.
