Poorly produced black metal full of boring, overplayed riffs. Songs are overlong, vocalist is terrible, bass is absent, and drumming is rudimentary and without flavor.
There's no formula for what constitutes good or bad metal. There's no metal reviewer's desk manual I can reference to confirm the awfulness of the albums I listen to. I suppose that there are rules for making pleasing music, but a dissection that probing probably wouldn't be worth the effort. I have a hunch that this album is bad. It might be the worst album I've ever heard. But, that's a diagnosis I cannot verify. Instead let me relate the symptoms, and let you decide if this album sucks.
Patient Name: Woods of Infinity
Nationality: Swedish (Patient does not speak English)
Symptoms: Patient suffers from poor production, leading to distressing lack of heaviness. Patient also suffers from engorged song structures, typically exceeding the seven minute mark. Healthy, sound-minded patients rarely exceed the five minutes. Tests showed signs of healthy riff patters which have atrophied due to neglect and lack of cultivation -- clear signs of tremolo abuse on display as well. Vocal patterns are off the charts. The patient's meniachal screeching is charming at first, but quickly outlasts its welcome. Like many others suffering with similar symptoms, patient seems to be functioning without a bass guitar.
Additional Notes: Patient makes infrequent use of samples. Album is over an hour long. Symptoms were manifested with much more positive results in Norway during the early 90s, however they seemed to have mutated with dire results here.
Diagnosis: Unclear at this point, but all symptoms point to a possibly terminal case of suck.
