Emancer - the.human.experiment
From Norway, more precisely Luster, hails the duo of EMANCER. The three songs on "the.human.experiment" are an excerpt of their eight-track album, for which the two gentlemen are searching a deal with this demo.

Let's think - Norway - Metal - Black Metal. Correct! EMANCER play Black Metal of the fast and grim sort, no keyboards or overtly many melodies or many calmer or slower passages, mostly between fast and damn fast, with cold guitars, very grim vocals, somehow sounding pretty old-school, yet without sounding outdated.

The only thing that doesn't fully fit are the clean vocals of "Celebrate Perfection", which sound a little misplaced. The sound itself is brilliant, given the fact that it has been produced on their own PC, I know many regular studio-productions, which are clearly overshadowed by this one, respect!

Would be a miracle, if EMANCER could not find a label with this, because the potential absolutely is there, fans of old-Norwegian Black Metal should keep an ear open, sound-files can be found on the homepage.
