FAST REVIEWS Craven Idol, Filii Nigrantium Infernalium, Germ, Absent Heat

Craven Idol - Towards Eschaton

This album reeks of thrash- and sulphuric black metal with its fast drums, thrashy riffs, screaming solos and some doomsday choirs. 
This UK group delivers everything you have come to expect from this poisonous mixture. It isn't bad by any means, but ain't that thrilling ethier...


Filii Nigrantium Infernalium - Pornokrates: Deo Gratias

This is a kind of interesting christ-defying cocktail with a lot of heavy- and thrash metal influences mixed in the receduce of black metal in the bottom of a black bucket. It overflows with all kinds of classical heavy metal riffs, and it ain't that bad, most of the times. Not much remains of what once were of this old portuguese group, but it's still a rewarding listening experience to take, at least once...


Germ - Grief

I really had high expectations for this album after his last EP "Loss" which I cherished indefinitely. But this album disappointingly does not live up to the predecessor. It absolutely ain't bad, the melancholy, the emptiness and despair is all present with its keyboard oriented music. But the mood is not quite here, the synthesizers and clean vocals takes up to much space and destroys some tracks that could have been great.


Absent Heat - Absence of Heat

This is an excellent album if you need to slumber. For almost everytime I have listened to this record I have fallen asleep. I don't really know why, it ain't that boring, maybe its the soundscape that sooths you or some magick stuff. But this album moves you're far away into your unconsciousness anyway. Other then that is this the typical stuff for depressive BM with noisy guitars and rabid distorted screams. Try it if you can't sleep.
