Crimson Midwinter
Random Chaos
[Black Mark]

After being impressed by their demo, I was rather curious about this album, and rarely I have been as disappointed. Where the demo was partly a reminiscent of Marduk's "Those Of The Unlight", this comes as a odd melange work of gothic, heavy metal and Göthenborg styled death, and is in effect a rather worthless and superfluous album. They are rather skilled musicians, but that doesn't save this piece of work from being lousy. I feel nothing when listening to this, no desire for violence, not even a desire to bang my head...
