Cirith Gorgor - _Onward to the Spectral Defile_
(Osmose, 1999)
by: Paul Schwarz (6.5 out of 10)
Cirith Gorgor pound out some violent and intense black metal at speeds which are above the average, and score browny points for the intensity and sheer violence they display with this approach. This assault is underpinned with a competent use of melody which traces the passages of the hard riffs underneath the blasting (and also frequently and creatively breaking) drums. Unfortunately, the vocals are painfully faceless and compound _OttSD_'s core problem: lack of variation. _OttSD_ doesn't vary enough over the course of its ten tracks to keep me interested for its forty two minute duration. If brutality is your thing, though, you could certainly do worse.
