Traditional black metal (i.e. fast, keyboard-less, ferocious) is the trademark of Setherial, one of several standout Swedish black metal bands who have been around for about a decade now, with four albums to their credit thus far. There's really nothing radically different here, but they simply shred. Setherial, then, belongs in the same league as fellow black metallers such as, say, Gorgoroth -- bands like these are not changing the face of black metal, but they prove that a high degree of originality isn't necessarily required for just plain good black metal.
