RITUAL DAY (China)
Mort Productions, 2002
Chinese band delivering 40+ minutes of black metal. I got no info about the
band and everything is in Chinese except for the line-up name and track
titles. They consist of 4 young guys (they are not using corpse paint so I
can guess from the pictures); Nong Yong (vocals/guitar), Pei Lei (bass),
Xhang Xin (lead guitar) and Li Yang (drums). Influenced by Norwegian black
acts and it is fast, chaotic and intense. The vocals are powerful but I must
curse some calm parts in some songs. If I am not mistaken, the third track
is the same track featured in Resurrection Of The Gods Volume 1. Nicely
design booklet. Generally the band is good but still lack some strong point
that will make they stand higher in the huge 'lake' of black metal release.
"Sky Lake" is easily like-able and easily forgotten.
