I swear I've heard this somewhere before...oh yeah, back in the 90's!
COMMENTS:
Grimtone sounds like they were birthed back in the heyday of 90's era black metal. While that doesn't do much for originality, it is a genre that suits the band incredibly well and it shows in the songs. Classic black metal guitar work, replete with tremolo picking and angry bees, are consistent throughout the album. The vocals are traditional black metal with some spoken word and a few truly haunting screams mixed in for good measure. The low end production makes it feel even more from the 90's but works well in this instance. If you want good, solid black metal with a nip of nostalgia, look no further.
RECOMMENDED FOR FANS OF:
