Battle Helm Rating

This is an artist that I know absolutely nothing about. Which is kinda exciting. That is part of the charm with doing this that I get to hear stuff that I wouldn’t normally. DAKOTA WESTBROOK is a single dude from Athens, Georgia that play black metal. The first album was apparently heavily influenced by snow. This new one seem to be more about self-deprecation as it is called “Worthless”. Musically I have a struggle placing it. It is black metal but is it USBM, 90s Norwegian, Swedish Dark Funeral/Marduk BM? What I can say is that I do hear traces of death metal in the sound. So it isn’t totally black metal. What I do know is that I sit here and enjoy what I hear. There is a charm to the music that I thoroughly enjoy. And that is good enough for me. Anders Ekdahl
