Abruptum - Evil Genius
In the Dutch black metal scene Abruptum had quite a name. Personally I never heard any of their songs. When I received Evil Genius by mail I was very curious, because of their name, and because the cd looked very nice, a completely black digipack with the logo in relief. But then... disappointment.
 
Evil genius is a re-release, originally it was released in 1995. But why a re-release? Are there really people who like this? The production is really crappy. Don't get me wrong, I listen to many old school productions, that sound like crap for non-black metal fans, but even I think this production is bad. Perhaps fans of sludge or drone will dig this. Not just the production is bad, but in my ears the songs are just noise. Something positive about this is that it really sounds evil, I guess that is what it should sound like.
 
I guess this record is just a must have for the die-hard Abruptum fans. If you would like to buy this album I recommend you to listen to it first in the record shop.
