Battle Helm Rating

The first thing that hit me when I started to listen to this album by American NEUTRAL WORLD was how much it made think of a Sisters of Mercy gone black metal. it has that almost goth-like feel to it that I love about Sisters Of Mercy. I might as well say it now; this is not the best depressive black metal I have heard. Not by a long stretch. But there is a youthful charm to this that appeals to me. The feel of not really having grown into the shoes they try to walk in. And it is that youthful charm that stops me from listening. With so many more bands being so much better out there NEUTRAL WORLD have to fight their way to the top if they want to be heard. There is huge potential in this. A song like “An Illusion (I Seek)” show enormous potential. Anders Ekdahl
