Staff review by
Since a couple of years the Depressive Black metal scene has expanded quicker than a woman pregnant from five overweight babies. This is because the threshold for the genre is very low: after a couple of months a bedroom DBM act feels 'mature' enough to release a couple of demos and ep's and does so. For this sole reason, I am always very hesitant when it comes to checking out new bands from this genre as they usually turn out to be dull and generic mid-era Burzum rip-offs. Though sometimes a band pops up which, although they often don't do too well in the originality department, has something worthwhile in their sound, something we can refer to as a 'spark' or 'emotion'.
