ISKRA

Bureval Demo 2009 (LP)

Neanderthal Stench - 11 €

Iskra on this record play basically raging black metal with crust punk overtones. The black metal part is mostly of Norwegian origin. There are a lot of riffs and they are fairly melodic. The riffs attempt to rip your face off and they succeeded quite well at this. Not only that but quite a few of them are memorable. The crust punk element is harder to pin down exactly. The bass guitar is fairly crusty. The riffs got a slight crusty feel to them too but definitely the crust punk part is not the dominant aspect. It is not like these riffs are just tremolo picked Doom or Tragedy riffs.
