Denial Of God - Klabautermanden
The label-info praises DENIAL OF GOD as Denmark's premier Black Metal-band. Well, to be honest I cannot recall many other Danish bands of this style, but if this is the best band, then I can do without hearing the others...

After the very atmospheric intro "Stormvarslet" ("Storm Warning"), the title-track sparks a real Black Metal-inferno, hyperspeed with shrieky vocals, very raw production (I assume that they wanted it to be this way) and a few slight Death Metal-growls. The other two tracks, among them the "cult-song" "Dethrone The Tyrant-God!", also hit into the same notch and rush past my ear without any impressions.

So if you like "pure, raw Black Horror Metal", which allegedly is a mix from Scandinavian Black Metal and Australian Death Metal, you should try out "Klabautermanden", but my ear reacted with a retraction of the external ear...
