The Heavy Metal Saloon: Watain: Rabid Death's Curse (2000) Album Review

The Heavy Metal Saloon: Watain: Rabid Death's Curse (2000) Album Review | The Heavy Metal Saloon: Verses of Punishment | Scoop.it
The Heavy Metal Saloon's insight:

"The thing about Rabid Death's Curse is, it isn't just Watain's ignoble beginnings, nor a sort of conventional opening to their career - it isn't even conventional but classic like Dark Endless or Secrets of the Black Arts, or anything like what could be expected from Sweden's black metal scene. It is a claustrophobic, unrelenting and putrefying assault of decrepit black death that rewards each repeat listen by unlocking further mysteries. After Casus Luciferi, this is the second most gripping Watain release - given Sworn to the Dark is somewhat tiring to sit through, and Lawless Darkness lends itself more to picking and choosing one or two tracks for the ol' iPod."

The Heavy Metal Saloon: Marduk: World Funeral (2002) Album Review

Marduk: World Funeral (2002) Album Review

The Heavy Metal Saloon's insight:

"Marduk have always seemed like a horde with a clear and cogent vision that has been maintained across changes in lineup and style over decades; an effect best felt in a live setting but also appreciable on even a less important and transitory piece like World Funeral - I can attest to both, as I have witnessed the opening song on this record performed live as part of a highly coherent setlist. Despite several flaws, World Funeral remains a listenable and relevant entry in Marduk's discography, both harking to their past and foreshadowing their future."
