When I think of one-man black metal acts I usually imagine raw, harsh sounding noise, made with guitars and drums while someone is screaming his guts out in a moist basement. The sound of these albums usually is utter crap and painful to listen to. But perhaps that's just the charm of the underground. Here it's a little different. Ame3apak makes songs, often even catchy extreme metal tunes.
Of course, there is still the eerie atmosphere, the blast-beats and the crushing riffs but the whole comes with a tremendous sense of variation and songwriting abilities. The result is an excellent album where black metal meets flashes of power and thrash. Furthermore, there are some brilliant guitar solos on this one, and that means a lot coming from someone who doesn't really like guitar solos.
Just listen to songs like 'Некромант'. I don't know what it means but I don't care. This is underground black metal at its best. It's as simple as that. So even more so than with the previous album I have to recommend checking this thing out. This Russian act is definitely getting better and better and this album is definitely the most varied, catchy and immersive work I heard from him.
