Supervillain Outcast
(Moonfog Productions)
56:23min

You know, when a band has released such an important release as we retrospectively regard "666 International" to be, the successor cannot fulfil the expectations. They can't repeat themselves, and they can't experiment too much without loosing their identity. Dødheimsgard choose a simpler way. However, that's only if you compare it to the mentioned former release, for "Supervillain Outcast" is again an album that includes more music and details than most album released under the monicker of being extreme Metal. There are surprises around every corner. The important thing is that you spend some time to assimilate to the album, because the first couple of times you notice that there's something wicked going on, but it's hard to sort everything out from the mess of strange rhythms and wicked turns. But with some patience you'll be rewarded and the music begins to reveal itself and drive with full force into your unprepared veins. The sound is excellent and gives you the right impression. No, it's not crystal clear and no, it's not the traditional Moonfog production. The sound is eerie and dresses the punching songs perfectly. You can distract the catchy parts from the more direct ones, with the result that the catchy parts are even catchier while the direct ones are more direct. The duality is great. So, all in all "Supervillain Outcast" is an album that does stand behind its predecessor but at the same time stand in front of the Metal scene of today. You won't do a mistake if you choose to invest some dimes on this one. www.moonfog.no
