Genocide Kommando - Black Metal Supremacy
Sterotypical Black Metal is what is on offer here, these two Kommander's, Noktu and Horrendus, along with a drum machine race through the 32 mins long playing time spitting their beliefs (which I am getting tired of in today's Black Metal scene).

The Kommander's share vocal duties and neither impressed me much. Thankfully their guitar work was much better good old hyperspeed Black Metal in the style of some of the Northern greats, kind of like DARKTHRONE with MAYHEM's speed. This however isn't enough to save the band as the riffs although good at the time were not groundbreaking or even remotely memorable.

"Dark art for the satanic elite" is what the CD says. What I say however is if you want the "elite" stick with the classics but if you want a new classic, something post 1994 then you certainly won't find it here, but look up ARMAGEDDA or FROST instead, you might be surprised by what you find.

Not bad by all means but in today's Metal scene saying this is becoming a cliché: Nothing new, nothing special, stick to the greats. (Online April 12, 2003)
