Don’t get me wrong: I’m not saying it is a bad album. There is indeed sonorous competence, a serious proposition, and a very demanding truth to the ground of their style, but the total absence of new elements is what worries me the most. With tracks that sounds more or less the same song over and over again, I can’t see a point in listening to this album one more time. A little boring, and sometimes tedious beyond belief, I haven’t seen any real genuine lapse of creativity on this record. Although I am a real fan of the genre, it didn’t appeal to me in any way, whatsoever. I haven’t seen originality in any of these tracks, unfortunately. Everything Abisso does on this record, several other BM bands have done before them, and a lot of them, way better. Boring guitar riffs, boring rhythms and boring sound sequences, the fourth track is by far the best of the record. A little more detailed, and capturing a more grotesque atmosphere of compound resilience, with better guitar lines, nonetheless, it does not outstands itself too much, over the other tracks. Sincerely, there is nothing here that you haven’t listened before, a hundred times in your life. WRNSS, unfortunately, manages to be just another five more tracks, version equal versus the same, in the vast amount of BM releases, that we see reaching the light of day, every year. In a few words, anything new under the sun.
Nevertheless, I can’t risk saying what these guys can do in the future. Another album, exactly like this one, or maybe, a real surprise. Who knows? Although their debut it is not a great beginning, they are just beginning, after all. We have to give them the benefit of the doubt. Well, enough said, I can only say that WRNSS does not worth your time. It’s too boring. The same old ingredients of Black Metal, without anything new, without adding that kind of fresh breath that makes you believe they can do the difference, after all. There is no life, no energy, no exhilarating or groundbreaking wrath, no real or sincere fury on this record, just the tedious dull fashion of the style, practiced in the very old conventional ways. It seems to be played mechanically by these musicians, in the most normal and common ground sense that you had ever listened to. Well, obviously, you can’t just stand by my opinion. If you are curious by any chance, you have to listen to this record by yourself. By any means, it didn’t caught my attention. I have listened to tens of Black Metal albums this year, way better than this one. But everybody is entitled to have their own opinions. So, if you want to risk a chance, feel free to listen to the record. In my personal evaluation, however, it will stand in a very common, obsolete and ordinary rank.
