The Culling Single Review
*taken from the album Dark Gods: Birth of The Architects by VON
Tracks include: "The Culling" which opens with some samples and a very psychedelic, doomy riff, done VON style (primitive and repetitious to maximum effect), with harsh vocals and a slow guitar solo. This is the nastiest sludge song I've heard in a long time! Next up is "Forbidden" which starts off much more traditional to 2nd wave Black Metal, then gives way to a massive doom riff that does eventually speed up into a classic-sounding VON riff and arrangement about halfway through the track, carrying the song into a tense finish before easing up with a return to the slow riff as a fade out.
