Job : You would think that the warm weather in Spain would produce not only good oranges, but also nice, summery music. Empty is here to prove that that’s not necessarily true at all times. Their icy, impressive and noisy black metal manages to sound more Nordic than most Norse bands of late. The awful production is the first thing that you’ll notice, and it will take some time to pierce through that to hear the music underneath. However, when you manage to do that, you’ll find some incredibly eerie, dissonant and vile black metal that’s of varying quality. Sure, there’s some passages that kind of ruin the moment, but most of it hits the spot. Now, this is not something you give to everyone – this is a small little dish you give to connoisseurs of the genre, just to give them something they’ll enjoy. And don’t get me wrong – it’s nothing more than that because this album will not win in the originality department. That doesn’t mean that it’s not integer and worth it.
