DALKHU
DALKHU
Descend... Into Nothingness
(Satanath Records)
33:55min

The three piece DALKHU from the Slovenian town of Slovenj Gradec is one of the veterans of the scene in their country. Yet, they are not a band of much releases. The album “Descend... Into Nothingness” is only their second album in more than a decade of existence. Until now, there was a demo and the debut full length “Imperator”, who both featured the same songs. Untamed creativity looks different... And “Descend... Into Nothingness” is not that brilliant that it made me think that DALKHU saved all their ideas to create the ultimate Metal record. But this doesn't mean this album is complete rubbish, of course. The pretty contemporary Black Metal with a little hint of Death and classic Metal is well done, has one or another good idea and is far from being annoying. It's just the final kick in the teeth that's missing on “Descend...”. Maybe it's due to the rather unspectacular to polished sound, maybe the pretty Death Metallic vocals, but this album is not really forcing me to listen to it over and over again. On the other hand, the classic Metal elements in 'Distant Cry' and 'Accepting The Buried Signs' made me listen up a little bit more. On the other hand, there are songs like the closing ten-minute tune 'E.N.N.F.' that sound random and are far from catching. If we sum that all up to a final verdict, “Descend... Into Nothingness” appears to be a contemporary Black Metal album that ain't my speed, but might be of interest for some.
