Staff review by
Do you remember some guys from Norway named Psy Coma, Von Blomberg and Lex Icon, under the emblem of The Kovenant, that released during 1999 an album named "Animatronic" harmonizing successfully black and industrial metal? I'll give the answer, yes! Now, do you remember a cult black metal band that gave alternative meaning to words like "abyss", "chaos" and "hell" during the 90s named Samael? I'll answer once more, yes! What do the bands have in common? The first perfected the hybrid of black with industrial metal with "Animatronic", the second from leaders and a band standing on its own with its unique darkness-evoking music turned into followers, simple copies; bad copies I would say…
