Picture Ann - Blaspheme 2009

Label : 9th Meridian Records | Archive under black/pagan metal

Release type: Full-length CD

Roel de Haan : Here we have 'Blaspheme 2009' by the Danish group Picture Ann. Picture Ann plays ambient black metal. So we get slow repetitive simple riffs, background synths, some piano and hardly any vocals. The is a clear Burzum influence present in the music, which is quite to be expected in this genre. Some of the songs have nice immersive atmosphere, but often Casio-like synths ruin the potential of the music by being distracting. Also the lack of rhythmic instrumentation and vocals don't help in keeping your attention. Some good ideas are shown by Picture Ann but as a whole this is not quite good enough to convince.
