Kråke – Conquering Death

This Norwegian outfit seems to like their black metal with a symphonic edge. Cue the obvious Dimmu Borgir and Old Man’s Child influences. They’re a new band who have recently released their debut full-length and while “Conquering Death” sounds good enough, it adds absolutely nothing new to the genre. Back when Dimmu Borgir released “Enthrone Darkness Triumphant” I was impressed because it was some of the heaviest and darkest shit I had ever heard. But it’s been done to death since then.

Even worse is the fact that the songs on “Conquering Death” aren’t even as good as Dimmu Borgir’s work. The songs on here are way too monotonous and the further you work your way down the tracklisting, the more things start to sound alike.

The only reason to check this one out is if you still haven’t tired of double bass drums, symphonic-sounding synths and an angry Yoda soundalike.
Score: 4.5 out of 10
