I stumble across some great new metal in my many reviewing gigs, demos of fantastic bands that deserve record deals, foreign bands trying to make an international splash, and bands just plying a style of music I enjoy. But I also get complete shit like this.
I’m always leery on one man projects from Eastern European and Light? further cements my trepidation. (The question mark makes me say the band name like Ron Burgundy in Anchorman; “Stay Classy San Diego. I’m Ron Burgundeeeeeee?”). Anyways, this Russian black/doom/ambient hodgepodge makes Fear of Eternity look like Beethoven as it's just about one of the worst musical efforts I’ve heard this year; over mixed synths layered over wafer thin guitars that range from attempted black ferocity, spiraling drawn out doom sprawling, and self indulgent progressive spurts of virtuosity (i.e. 4:40 of “Feeling the Pain of Loss”, “They-Pain”) as well as numerous, mindless atmospheric instrumental tracks, about half of the album's 14 tracks actually (oh and starting the album with not one but two lengthy instrumental tracks just does not work unless the album is a purely instrumental album). Then you’ve got Eugney Churkin’s god awful clean wailing (“...And She Kisses Clean Skies”, “They-Time”) and typical black shrieking and spoken word combo. The end result is that all tracks come across as a complete mess of idea shat out of the rectum of one man’s own misguided sense of talent.
I’d like to go into further detail about this, really I would. But to be honest, listening to this is a painful affair that makes me wonder if their should be some form of formal application test before being allowed to release an album that people pay money for.
