Fuck You All
(Season Of Mist)
First of all the tolerance of Season Of Mist has to be pointed out here, the fact that they accepted this cover - "artwork", which is nothing more than crap, proves that the guys at that label have great hearts. Turning to the music, in the end we have to live with the fact that CARPATHIAN FOREST are not able, or do not want to create supreme cold, morbid atmospheres, like they did until "Black Shining Leather", anymore. So leaving that point behind, "Fuck You All" turns out to be quite entertaining, it comes along quite rocking, then thrashing and also some "blast beats" are thrown in here and there. It is somehow a good soundtrack when driving in your car, with your ellbow out of the window, cursing the asshole before you why the fuck he is driving so slowly. Being more serious again, although I am really into the pre - "Strange Old Brew" era of CARPATHIAN FOREST, "Fuck You All" is really not a bad album, all in all it fits the actual band (-concept), the production of the music is quite good, not overproduced, but clear and with atmosphere. The songs are simply structured, go straight ahead without any "shnicky-shnacky". So if you liked the two previous albums you can buy this one without hesitating. www.tnbm.no, www.season-of-mist.com.
