Effluvium - _Genesis of Our Conquest_
by: Adrian Bromley (2 out of 5)
Once you get past the absolutely atrocious sound quality of this three-song demo, the music of Effluvium isn't all that bad. The band, a mixture of black metal masters Emperor, vintage Black Sabbath and the heavy metal charge of Iron Maiden, manage to find some stride with their sound -- but with almost no real production finesse to aid the material here, the music goes nowhere. While there are several long guitar solos peppered throughout that add some likeable characteristics to their bland dark metal approach, Effluvium lack substance to keep us interested. I hear some potential, but when the music is weighted down by production like this, it is hard to imagine doing anything else other than turning it off.
