Roel de Haan : After more than a decade since their latest album ‘Fuck You All!!!!’ the Norwegian veterans of Carpathian Forest return with an ep. ‘Likeim’ is the title of two track release. It starts with the title track. Typically Carpathian Forest I would say. Black thrash with a strong black ‘n’ roll feel. This short songs does feature a nice synth addition, but after a mere two minutes and 45 seconds one cannot shake the feeling that the band put this together very hastily. Very simplistic and repetitive. The other song is a Turbonegro cover of the song ‘All My Friends Are Dead’. It fits with Carpathian Forest’s style and that is about it. Typically a song to complete side B of this 7” vinyl. If this ‘Likeim’ is representative for the quality of their forthcoming album I won’t be salivating at the prospect of hearing it. Only for rabid fans with an obsessive need for completion.
