Unfortunately, despite its brevity – the album has only thirty five minutes – the album, filled with very slow songs from the beginning until the very end, turns itself to be exceedingly monotonous, and you eventually get a little tired while listening to it. The album certainly can’t be considered a bad one, but, on the other hand, it does abuse too much on the slowness of the rhythms, and the feeling of boredom strikes you hard in the head. Also, with a sound that appears to be too uniform all the way through, with little rhythmic variations between the songs, the album proves to be an exhausting experience for your patience.
Unable to attract listeners outside the very specific niche of slow and ordinary black metal – although done competently – unfortunately, Utter the Tongue of the Dead is a poor experience, unless you are crazy about slow and raw black metal. In that case, you will definitely enjoy.
What can be said of positive about them is the fact that they certainly managed to create an interesting and very personal style for themselves. Since I couldn’t detect any apparent influences, for sure they managed to dilute all of them perfectly, in the voracious sound of their own style. Very dark and obscure, but yet too drowsy, my final statement for this album is the fact that it sounds decently. But only a very specific audience within the black metal circle will appreciate.
