VIKING CROWN - INNOCENCE FROM HELL - BAPHOMET/NECROPOLIS
It is sickening how many legitimate bands can't get their hands on a record deal, when some hillbilly poser from Pantera can release this CD whose musical and production values make Darkthrone sound like the Toronto philharmonic. Loads of keyboards, desultory passages and something in the background (drums perhaps?) which sounds like a stapler. This band's got a mouth for poser. - Ali "The Metallian"
