And again they have done it. Just like their mates from Darkthrone. If you would ask me who today's carriers of the Black Metal flame are, those would be the aforementioned Darkthrone and Carpathian Forest. Both of them keep releasing records that piss people off. And even better, the people that are being pissed off now are the same ones that used to enjoy pissing off others back in the day. That's irony for you.
"Fuck You All !!!!" was actually intended to be their swansong, but at the moment of writing, there are plans for a next release called "Universal Evil". Great. I can't wait. For now, we'll just have to rock out with our cocks out to this sweet baby.
On this album they have taken the rock and punk influences further than ever before. The cold atmosphere of the old days is almost completely gone. From that point of view it is understandable that the old fans grieve over the band's decision to 'modernize'. But if they would just give this album a chance instead of discarting it on sight, they would actually hear that they have only gained in strength.
As said, the music is much more influenced by punk. The name "Black 'n roll" has been dropped for their earlier works and applies even more to this one. We hear catchy, short riffs and rocking choruses, sprinkled over by the darkest and most grim of Black Metal. Yet they never seem to take themselves too serious. Through the entire recording, the most appealing factor is the ever present and dominating fun while recording. The blood, sweat and tears that were gladly spilled, and almost splash you in your face while listening.. that's rock 'n roll. Perfect examples of these are the songs "Submit To Satan" and "Start Up The Incinerator". They would be ridiculous if any other band would perform them, but Carpathian Forest can pull it off. A bulk of adrenaline rushes through your body and you cannot help but scream along, where ever you are.
This thing took me by surprise. Its simplicity was unexpected, yet very welcome. The additional rage it caused, was hilarious. A great band, a great discography, a great album.
