Krallice - Krallice (2008)

Oh my fucking Jesus Christ, this band is awesome.
If you like Burzum's early shenanigans or Ulver's more straightforward (but not too straightforward...) black metal, or if you're just interested in what a black metal side project with Colin Marston (Behold... The Arctopus, Dysrhythmia) and Mick Barr (Crom-Tech, Orthrelm) sounds like, you need to check this out. Hell, the unreadable band logo should be enough to convince you that these guys don't fuck around.

High speed, mind-fuck tremolo riffing (you know that's why you like Black Metal in the first place) is the name of the game here, but there's definitely a few throwbacks to these two guys' tech-metal roots. The riffing changes so constantly that you feel like you're being thrown back and forth between two screaming beasts, all while some dude bellows at you from behind the mix. One of the best albums this year so far, hands down.
