Intolerant – “Snow Stained With The Blood of Traitors” – [Prison Tatt Records]
Nine track compilation CD released this year. Cookie monster vocals and blended distorted static sounds. This is not a crisp bite from a pita chip, more like a crunchy gooey bite from a rice krispies square. Delicious and you want more. Self-identified black metal. Sounds like some good guitar solos but it is very distorted. This group has only been together for a couple years and this is our only piece from them.
A few seconds of spoken word at beginning of tracks one and eight. I liked The Eternal Law because I could visualize them performing it and Steadfast Destiny because it is fast and has cawing vocals towards the end. Tracks start and stop suddenly. The music is definitely intended to be played loud and therefore kind of mushy but it left me wishing it was mixed differently so I could hear the musicianship. There is also an inconsistency with the recordings as if they were done at different places and times. While I liked it some of the songs felt repetitive. Play this loud. Really loud. NO discernable FCCs.
