Review: Toorn (‘wrath’) is the first band of the tape and it kicks in with black metal that has its massive guitars in front of distant drums and vocals, which works contraproductive for the enjoyment of the music. On the band’s first song, some of the riffs are clearly Deathcrush-Mayhemesque, which is actually nice. The industrial-like samples used would fit a strange band like S.M.E.S. but not a black metal band.

Weltschmerz offers uptempo black metal with the kind of drum patterns I really enjoy and relatively straight-forward old-school riffs. It’s my favorite band of the split tape. I do wonder about the lyrics: “Satan is groot. Satan is machtig. Satan heeft een pik van 6 meter 66.” (taken from Asmodeus). What should we make of that?

The two Canadian bands are not the subject of this website, so I will not review them. They are quite enjoyable though.
