Tidfall Instinct Gate

Surprise, surprise, another black metal band from Norway, and it sounds a lot like Dimmu Borgir. You would swear you were listening to a tribute band here. Honestly, it is not that it's that bad, but come on, can't they even try to be original? Sure, there is some melody mixed in with the brutality, but at the end of the day it is all about the songs and quite frankly these Norse warriors could have done a lot better. Why not be original instead of replaying the same thing that has been done to death? Do yourself a favour and get the new Green Carnation album instead. (Nuclear Blast)
