Graveborn: Through the Window of the Night

Finnish black metal heathens Graveborn go for the jugular on their second full-length album (and first for Seance Records), titled Through the Window of the Night. No spooky atmospherics here, just Satanic themed brutality and hatred driven by plenty of jackhammer blasting, furious guitar riffs, and evil, maniacal vocal screeches. Some really well done tunes here, like the glorious stomp of "Burn the City of God", the raging "Into the Abyss", "Tiesi Päähän", and the more textured "In the End I Find My Beginning". Yes, a few tracks are just so pummeling & unrelenting that they tend to sound a tad too similar to each other, and you could arguably say there's not a lot of variety here, but man this is just so damn potent from start to finish. Next time around I'd love to see a few tempo shifts, and hell, maybe it's just that a little atmosphere is needed in spots, but these guys can certainly crush, so if you like early Marduk, Immortal, Dark Funeral, and Gorgoroth, you'll need to check this band out.
