Staff review by

Weakling are one of the most important bands in the United States Black metal scene. Dead As Dreams, their post-mortem debut album, is both emotionally riveting and intensely raw. And although it is hard to get because of its limited release, with five songs clocking in over 75 minutes, it's worth every penny!

Weakling's main characteristic is their frequent juxtaposing of galloping and droning riffs. They run off into a blood-hungry battlefield-riff just as easy as they dwell in drawn-out multi-layered drones. But there's more.

Staff pick by

17.04.2010 Dead As Dreams is one of the best USBM albums around. Weakling offers the listener seventy-five minutes of raging Black metal with cutting-edge song writing and epic song structures. It's diverse, heart-wrenching and driven; don't miss out if you ever bump into this hard-to-find gem!

  One long freaking black metal album, but darn my socks if it doesn't keep you entertained.

Rating: 9 Fantastic album, about 15 minutes too long though. Dead As Dreams (song) is pretty much a masterpiece, the dual guitar lead is sooooo good.

Rating: 9 I don't even notice how long it is. It's that kind of good.
