Hemlock - _Crush the Race of God_
(Head Not Found, 1997)
by: Adam Wasylyk (6 out of 10)
More unspectacular black metal fodder comes our way via Brooklyn, NY's Hemlock. With the bass and production work being handled by Brutal Truth's Dan Lilker, my respect goes out to the band for not capitalizing on Dan's notoriety. Over the six tracks on _Crush the Race of God_, one can hear Norwegian-inspired black metal in its rawest and most primitive form. Some moments bring interest, while others just seem to drag on and go nowhere. Even at the band's musical height ("The Cold Twilight"), they still fall short compared to their counterparts in the genre. This isn't bad by any means, but for me, there will always be something better to hear.
