Origin: Norway
Genres: Black Metal


Norwegian black metal bands have been pouring out of the woodworks for years, and many of them are pretty faceless and interchangeable. On the surface, one might lump Urgehal into that group. There's really nothing unique about them at all; not their member names, not their corpsepaint image, not their lyrical stance, and not their rather standard brand of old school black metal. Certainly this is not the one band that might convert a non-believer into a kvlt fan. Yet while they don't do anything remotely original, they actually do the genre proud. The production is a bit raw, but not of the ridiculous awful-on-purpose type, and the songs have bite and venom and hit the right notes. So, not a game-changing band, but certainly one that satisfies the black metal cravings.
