Manatark
Chaos Engine

The 2nd album from Estonian black metal band (project?), lead by singer/lead guitarist Draconic. They used their own language on their first release, but every song on this album is written in English, so it may be easier this time for non-Estonian black metal listeners to access this band. What you hear on this record is dramatic evil black metal with some influences from EMPEROR, expressing the world of darkness with using effective tempo changes and atmospheric keyboards. Although performance and songs are both okay, I didn't enjoy this piece of work that much due to my personal taste of music. Sound production is cheap and sounds "underground". Slight industrial arrangement are to be heard partly, but all in all this band can't offer me more than a halfway sympho-black metal. This kind of impression might be changed to positive one if I get used to listen to this kind, though.
