Reviews

FORGOT - BURNING DOWN - PROPAGANDA  
Forgot is one of the oldest Russian black metal bands and has quite a tortured sound. There is a hint of synthesizers in the background, and sadly a drum computer, but the frog-like vocals are surrounded by a hollow and depressing evil monotone. This is surely evil and grim as it gets. The songs offer little variation and the band is clearly not after any kind of commercial acceptance. The group’s biography looks down upon the nationalist views of other bands in the genre, which is the way it should be. While all that is good songs like All Will Disappear, Forgot, My Star or Nuclear Winds offer next to no variety or distinction from one another. The use of the same programmed 'drum beat' of course makes matters worse. Fans of Burzum may dig this, but the group’s sole member needs to recruit members and allow them into the songwriting process in the future. - Anna Tergel
