PLUTONIAN SHORE/ A TRANSYLVANIAN FUNERAL
“Alchemical Manifestations”
(Forbidden Records)
It might seem like I’m a grumpy old fool but I don’t really like split albums. Don’t know why the y rub me the wrong why just like compilation records does. Perhaps I need that much control that I know what band’s album is playing and not having to keep track of what band it is that is on right now. That both bands are black metal doesn’t really help me decipher what is which. Plutonian Shore are new to me but there is that Darkthrone vibe to them too that I got from A Transylvanian Funeral’s last album. Perhaps with an older Dimmu Borgir flair for diversion. A Transylvanian Funeral are even more so Darkthrone in their sound. This is primitive and basic in that monotonous way Darkthrone is. And although both bands work within almost the same realm there is a way to tell them apart. Of the two I gotta say that I like ATF the best. There is something to their basic black metal that I find appealing. Anders Ekdahl
