ANTIPOPE ”Denial/Survival”


Battle Helm Rating

I can’t say that I am familiar with this Finnish band’s history. But apparently they started out as black metal but evolved over time to be more industrial/gothic/progressive. That is all fine but what I really want to know is if this sucks or not. Listening to it I can hear the black metal roots but I also hear the other stuff they’ve incorporated into their sound. And it doesn’t suck at all. Instead this is rather nice. There is an atmospheric vibe to this that I like. If I were to label it I’d place it in the more atmospheric black metal compartment. But with the added touches of different influences. This was a nice surprise. Anders Ekdahl
