3.5/10 Mladen
 

HELFAHRT - Drifa - CD - Trollzorn - 2010

review by: Mladen Škot

Simple, clean sounding, rocking black metal, done by using a few standard rhythms and shifts between mid-tempo thrash and up-tempo with occasional blastbeats, Helfarht might be a somewhat interesting live band. But, as something that is on a CD and is supposed to be listened to at home, Drifa doesn't offer much. Emotions, atmosphere, attitude, whatever it takes to make a band or a CD stay in your memory, things like that are largely absent. Even with numerous tempo changes there's still a feeling of listening to one and the same thing, song, vocal, scream, guitar note, bass note, over and over. Occasional clean interludes don't help much. And if Drifa is supposed to have something pagan in it, we're not exactly sure what it is and where we are supposed to look for it. (3.5/10)
