Review: Brandhaard creates the kind of black metal that reminds me of both Swedish and Dutch bands. The latter are represented by bands like Martyr, Warlust, (older) Sauron and (older) Yaotzin. The Swedish are perhaps older Marduk and Dark Funeral, but since the sound is more muffled and less reverbed, it doesn’t really sound Swedish. The songs are not always captivating - certainly the long stretches devoid of vocals - but they are not bad at all. It’s clear there’s a band that doesn’t want to be clustered in with bands that avoid song structure and only go for repetition. To be honest, it’s not a release I’d listen to a lot, and it’s something to do with the sound, which sounds black metal, but misses the bite of a somewhat better production, and sometimes comes too close to a rehearsal recording. If it is a rehearsal, on the other hand, it’s probably one of the better-sounding ones around.
