Staff review by
Gallhammer are an all-female Japanese trio, and their bandname is a rather blatant clue concerning one of their biggest influences. You guessed it - the infamous Hellhammer must be one of these ladies' favourite bands, and the wonderfully primitive approach of this collection of compositions is sheer bliss for those of us with a love for that style. However, this album is far more than a mere Hellhammer tribute - there are also elements of Burzum and even U.K. Crust music to be found here, and overall there is an oppressive, otherworldly atmosphere which makes this band stand out from the crowd.

The album is opened up by a Grudge style croak and from then on things get as nasty as a B-movie slasher. However, Gallhammer fail on so many levels that actually never seem to amount to a complete disaster. The shorter songs are particularly the better ones, whereas the longer pieces, that appear to drag on for hours and never pick up anywhere, largely suffer due to boring and mediocre repetition. At least it's better than 'The End' though.
