Zyklon World OV Worms

I am sure it isn't too hard to guess what a new side project featuring members of Emperor, Myrkskog and Limbonic Art sounds like. This Norwegian corpse-painted supergroup attempts to and pulls off pretty much what you would expect from them: a fast, aggressive, violent black metal album that'll scare the kiddies when the lights go out. To be honest, this is this is not all that different from Emperor's last album, Equilibrium IX. The album has a very fast tempo throughout and doesn't let up. Clocking in at just under 40 minutes, there is literally no time to breathe, as the band doesn't let up at all. Nonetheless, it is a very modern sounding record and fans of the genre will undoubtedly eat this up. (Candlelight)
