Ouija - _Riding Into the Funeral Paths_
(Repulse, 1997)
by: Brian Meloon (8 out of 10)
This is a good debut album of well-played black metal. Their style sounds similar to Dawn: a death metal band playing black metal. The music is precise, solid, and never too fast. In addition, the guitars and drums are usually strongly coupled and give the music a dense sound. This is a very good album, but it's not really exceptional in any regard. There aren't any songs which stand out as being especially good or bad; they are of uniformly high quality. The singing is standard black metal rasping. The drums, guitars, and bass are all very solid. The production is fine. The song writing is varied; the songs don't get boring, and yet they all have a similar sound to them. This is definitely recommended for fans of well-played black metal.
