URSKUMUG - AM NODR - LEDO TAKAS  
Boy, the band’s biography had me so wary of this album that nearly anything would have been a pleasant surprise after reading it, not to mention how Urskumug is in point of fact a fantastic brutal metal album of superlative proportions. Where the biography lists a keyboardist and two persons operating a drum machine, the band has a full, brutal and creative sound that will delight death metal and black metal fans. The amount of power generated by these Latvian four is enough to power a city-state. The band describes itself as a “pagan metal” band and titles like Talking As A Shaman’s Son, Time Of The Jackdaw and Mother Of Halfworld pull no punches. The band is pretty intricate and mixes in many subtle elements in its music. One suspects that each subsequent listen might yield yet another little ditty not noticed before, yet Urskumug at its core is a blasting powerhouse with teeth. The grade should be more around the 75 mark, but the lack of a drummer and deference to ethnic customs and instrumentations are an annoyance. - Anna Tergel
