Dunderbeist: Black Arts & Crooked Tails

Having lived with Black Arts & Crooked Tails for quite a while now I am disappointed to report that despite being described as one of Norway's, "strongest live acts and an exciting and innovative band to bring the metal sound to new levels and new generations," the album hasn't really registered with me as a winner. You know you're in trouble when you start thinking how good the record sounds step forward Dunderbeist who self-produced aided by Fredrik Ryberg and Kristian Liljan who mixed and engineered whilst Alan Douches (Mastodon, Misfits, Cannibal Corpse, Kvelertak) took care of mastering.

What I find lacking on Black Arts & Crooked Tails are songs that I can remember five minutes after yet another listen. Sure I can remember that "Fear & Loathing" is loud and thrashy but any semblance of a memorable tune? No, sorry. Therein lies the rub, it's not bad, it's just ok.

Track Listing:
1. La Guerre du Feu (Lord of the Flames)
2. Through The Peephole
3. Fear & Loathing
4. Lucifer Eyes
5. The Worst Sentence
6. Shields Aligned
7. More Me
8. Winter past
9. 8 Crows and Counting
10. Hum Hum
