Children of Naami - _The Veil of Osiris_
(Velvet Music, 1998)
by: Brian Meloon (7 out of 10)
This is a one-man black metal outfit, the one man being Vindsval (Blut Aus Nord, The Eye). It is self-described as "black metal experimental", and it does fit that bill, even though it isn't overly experimental. The music is mostly thrashy black metal, with a processed/industrial feel. A good description might be "a black metal version of Overflash". It is competently played, but there are some sections which could be a little tighter. Their sound features some new touches: processed vocals, some interesting guitar parts, etc. It isn't necessarily anything that you haven't heard before, but the presentation and vision are unique. The music is pretty melodic and keyboard-driven in places, and it tends to be a little repetitive. There are four songs, clocking in at a little over 22 minutes. Overall, this is a decent offering: standard fare, but competently played, and with enough new touches to stand apart from the crowd.
