Teloch Vovin: I

Well then...there's necro, and then there's NECRO. New York City occult black metal horde Teloch Vovin have seemingly taken the prize for the most horrific & blood curdling sounding release of 2013. And, let's be honest, I is probably also the worst sounding album I've heard this year from a production standpoint. I mean, this thing sounds like a black mass that was recorded on a 1982 tape recorder in a sewer. It's that bad folks, but, I'm guessing that was the intent. You see, these guys seem to have wanted to create a feel of classic late'80s/early '90s Scandinavian black metal, when bands released their stuff on cassette and had zero money for recording. This is primal, this is raw, this is necro, and most importantly brutal. You don't get much more savage than this. The song titles make little sense, the violent screaming & rasping is so evil and over the top that it will send shivers up and down your spine, and the relentless blasting and riffing just completely pulverizes. Though the band does drop in some moments of creepy atmosphere on the multi-part "An Entrance unto the Tunnuls ov Set", for the most part this is just crazed black metal that is not for the faint of heart. I can always appreciate a black metal acts that pay homage to the early days of the scene, but much of I sounds like complete shit, which is a shame because I think the bands material is actually pretty good. Let's see if they can step up the production values even a hair next time out, as the talent of the band is certainly there.
