THE TRUE ENDLESS
THE TRUE ENDLESS
Legacy Of Hate
(Aphelion Productions)
39:28min

As much as I do enjoy Black Metal, I think the genre was already saturated by the late 90s. Maybe my lack of interest since then is due to the fact that just a few albums have really surprised me and that I got stuck with first and (some) second generation bands. Sometimes I think I am not the right person to review this style. But it is great to come by bands like Italian THE TRUE ENDLESS and their sixth full length "Legacy Of Hate". Formed back in 1997, their catalog deserves respect. In a 16 year carrier span, they have put out 6 full lengths (five of them released through Aphelion Productions), demos, splits, EPs and even a couple official VHS tapes. I usually stay away from comparisons when I write reviews, but in this case, they fit perfectly. The influences are obvious, ranging from the raw style of HELLHAMMER and VENOM to full speed attacks à la MAYHEM and DARKTHRONE, including great atmospheric touches that resemble DRUDKH. But don't be confused. THE TRUE ENDLESS are no copycats. They have developed their own style through all these years. Their music is not pretentious at all and it comes straight through. This is good old Black Metal done the right way. Production wise, the overall sound is clear and well balanced. Pounding drums that doesn't sound triggered at all, in your face vocals and lots of tremolo riffing supported by open diminished chords and some creepy melodies. The mix of the bass and guitar tones is really heavy, which is surprising, given the "standards" of the genre. It adds a whole new dimension to the music. Synths are used time to time to enhance some passages and to create even more atmosphere. "Legacy Of Hate" is an album that flows with lots of dynamics and intensity from start to finish. Highly recommended to anyone who enjoys the genre as a whole or more specifically, second generation Black Metal. Support and respect these Italian extremists! They deserve it!
