Flukt is a Norwegian based black metal band which has been around for about a year or so now, and has released an EP named 'Holocaust' a while ago.
It's 90's inspired primitive melancholic black metal we get served here, is it served good you may wonder..
Let's find out...
'Holocaust' has been out for a while now and they have been featured on various comp. cd's but I decided to review it anyways.
'Holocaust' has 6 tracks which are mostly mid-paced tempo black metal with some faster parts and put me in a dark,melacholic and eerie mood. I enjoy it,even though it wouldn't hurt if they had a more agressive approach or punch to it.
That being sais I wouldn't want 'em to change their style, just a bit more edge to it and this would be excellent.
It also last nearly 20 minutes so you get value for the money.
I feel like it's lots of potential here but it's not fully unleashed yet, the more I listen to it the better it gets and the more it reveals.
First listen didn't impress me to much and I found it a bit monotone at times, maybe it was a bad day for listening or maybe it just grows as a piece of music who knows.
Flukt certanly has my attention and I don't know why but I get somewhat nostalgic while listening to this,like being drawn into somewhere else somewhere dark,and back in time.
Flukt are certainly up to something good here and I think 'Holocaust' is a good proof of that.so let's hope they continue to execute this type of black metal.
Production wise it's pretty good and suits the musical atmosphere the way it should.
