With their second album, "Terror Propaganda", the Swedes from CRAFT had made one of the best Black Metal albums from the year 2003, definitely a true homage to DARKTHRONE, and a condensate of pure hatred. "Total Soul Rape", their very first album, having been not so well distributed at the time, their new label Selbstmord are re-releasing it… and you won't be disappointed of the trip I think, because this album is also of very good quality and shows well that CRAFT are a great Black Metal band.
Ok, it's not so original and the tracks are even sometimes quite basic, but there's such a hatred and such a feeling here that you can't pass by and forget about them. It's really good true Black Metal, but with a very decent sound, far from the shower sounds we're used to… which makes you'll like it even more! Anyway, "Total Soul Rape" is still a bit under its successor "Terror Propaganda", but it will only give you the will to get as soon as possible their third album, that should come out soon. If Satan wants it of course… (Online October 11, 2003)
