100-Word Review: Patria – Individualism

Patria - IndividualismBrazilian black metal for you now with Patria’s fifth release, Individualism. Already on release through Indie Recordings.

This one’s already had some good reviews elsewhere and it’s easy to see why. Or hear why, to be more accurate.

With a very traditional black metal sound – strident guitars, vocals that sound like they’re dripping blood and blasted drums – this could have been recorded in Norway by people called Olaf or something.

What I like most about it is that it’s simple. No attempts to be wildly different, just plain and straightforward and easy to pick up and enjoy. Sometimes there’s nothing wrong with a formula. Patria have recognised this and mastered it beautifully.

Fancy torching a church now?
