Apolokia - Kathaarian Vortex

This is retro Black Metal. Yes Mayhem comes to mind but not really the same thing. I really want to like Apolokia, there is a lack of dynamics and distinct changes.  There are places on the Cd like Malignant Asphyxiation and Coil of Nihilism where a deeper tone is used with the vocals that I really like and would have like to heard more of.  I like what they are doing and going for. You could totally zone out to a CD like this simply for the repetition if you like Death Metal. I love raw production but I really think this could have been a stronger effort. The tin like reverb sound gives it that feel like they are playing from the pit of hell and would accent nicely the soundtrack to DungeonMaster 2 if they ever make a sequel. Hope,Hope.
