Meth - _Legacy of Vikings_
by: Adam Wasylyk (4 out of 5)
Not bad, not bad at all! Meth play Viking-inspired black metal that contains plenty of interesting guitar hooks and varying tempos. Songs like "Whores of Norway", "Palace in the Mountains", and "Frostbitten Soul" testify to this. Each song has at least one intriguing aspect which I find hard to find these days on a demo (well, judging from the demos I've reviewed in the last two issues of CoC). Influences? Hmmmm... that's a hard one, no band really comes to mind. There's a little Bathory influence here, but no other noticeable influences are present. Meth are a hard band to describe, but its music is definitely not hard to enjoy. The only thing that prevented this demo from a perfect mark was the production, which isn't shit but could have been better. I hope that Bill continues with Meth, as I hear he has a number of other musical projects going. This demo is worth picking up, for the music is top rate.
