Black Northern Storm

Vanquished - Black Northern Storm - 2005 - Krankenhaus Records
“Black Northern Storm” is not really a terrible album; it’s just not a good album either. With nine tracks of almost identical-sounding one-riff black metal, guitarists/vocalists Dertah and Grimnyr show a decent amount of talent but little to no creativity. Likewise, drummer Warhammer is extremely fast, but doesn’t do much more than create noise. None of the tracks are unpleasant to listen to, but why settle for second-best? Immortal, Darkthrone, or any of the classic old-school acts have done exactly what Vanquished are doing, and they did it better. I would recommend passing on the album not because Vanquished have done something wrong but because they haven’t done anything right.
