Black Dawn - _Blood for Satan_
(Necropolis, 2001)
by: Aaron McKay (3 out of 10)
I can't believe I am again consigned to reviewing another "I'm more evil than you"-type band. Nothing new can be found on _Blood for Satan_ -- nothing! You most assuredly can glean whatever Black Dawn is trying to pass off as "true black metal" from many, many different genuine black metal outfits, most of which I can appreciate. The same gratitude -cannot- be said for BD by any stretch of the imagination. Having roots back as far as 1992, I wonder as I listen to this why BD cares to even try anymore. Riffs like on "Enemy of the Day" save this disc from complete unadulterated musical bankruptcy, but they are too far and few between to be consequential. If Black Dawn is serious about the banal instruction on the CD's back cover that "_Blood for Satan_ should only be listened to during the practice of self-mutilation", why -- OH WHY -- haven't these guys bled to death? They are the farcical ringleaders, right? More misrepresentation. Yawn...
