Strandhogg - Ritualistic Plague (Evangelical Death Apotheosis) (2009)
When I first read the name of the band I giggled since, with just a minor tweak, Strandhogg could be translated to ?beach stabbed? in Swedish. Which doesn?t make sense and has absolutely nothing to do with the review per se, it just made me laugh.
But nevertheless the act?s debut album is certainly no laughing matter. This is one of the most ferocious, unrelenting black metal albums I?ve heard in years. They manage to take the typical old school Norwegian style á la Gorgoroth, 1349 and the likes, the Swedish agenda á la Dark Funeral and Marduk, spiced it with the typical French mad ferocity á la Antaeus and Arkhon Infaustus and then put their own Polish spin on it all. And the end result is intense, technical and unorthodox black metal.
The guitar lines are slick, perfectly coherent with the frenetic drumming. You?ll get ultra-killer blasting as well as some harsh, grim slower sections (which will still be carrying much of the ferocity due to the riffing). The song structure can at times play tricks with your mind, as the same track can twist and turn in several different directions, while still remaining brutal and raw-as-hell. On top of this you have the frantic vocals, as he spews forth the satanic lyrics with immense devotion and intensity, and in many styles. But you?ll just as well hear the pummeling of the bass, as they really let the one of the most underappreciated metal instruments take its rightful place at times.
It is absolutely shredding, it is a powerful and sounds extremely ?evil?, in lack of a better word to describe it. The sound is good and the atmosphere is great. Plain and simply an unrelenting black metal assault that every fan of the genre should look up.
Originally written for http://www.mylastchapter.netQuote:Contrary to somewhat over-excited description in the archives, Strandhogg's debut full-length album presents no less than solid black metal, reminiscent of Setherial in its core, but refined with subtle keyboards and complex songwriting. Being far from what we would expect from a "brutal" black metal band, Strandhogg offers in return dozens of riffs and interesting passages, which is rarity in the genre. It seems, then, that these few years since the first demo release have made the band quite an extraordinary example of nowadays Polish black metal.
The key aspect of the album is, however, its ambiance. Despite heavy, almost death metal-like mounting, "Ritualistic Plauge" manages to keep the mood of classic black metal masterpieces. Whether it is "Grim, hypnotic, cavernous and extremely violent in execution" remains a matter of imagination, but the atmosphere is no worse than what we could ever expect.
While awful sound quality is a usual flaw of most black metal releases, Strandhogg does not neglect the production side of music, being able to combine both the "black" and the "metal". All of this makes it almost a perfect proof that it is possible to stay loyal to the genre, at the same time breaking the schemes once laid down by artists, who would not fit the reality of today. So does Strandhogg and hopefully it will be noticed widely.
