Berto : The band with the most unlikely name this month would be Hetroertzen. I have no idea how to pronounce it, but it concerns a band that is originally from Chile, but has now relocated to Scandinavia. Despite that they probably are warm-blooded men, they managed to create a decent batch of cold black metal. Stylistically, it was a logical step to move to the cold north, because their hypnotic riffs and dry tight drumming could be of Norwegian origin. The vocals have something stately about them, sometimes it sounds more like a proclamation, but it does give the sound something unique. That is also the only thing original about the band, because musically the band maneuvers conveniently between the Scandinavian examples. You could say that's quite an achievement for a couple of Chileans, but it is all about the music of course and that sounds not very original. Although the sound is quite 'old school' and 'underground', it does not sound too gritty. For fans of the Swedish sound this is quite a nice album to check out.
