Abruptum

Abruptum was formed by the pair of It and All, who also collaborated together on two other odd black metal bands in Vondur and Ophthalamia. Apparently All left and Evil (Morgan Håkansson, the main man behind Marduk) joined up, and some time after that It left and Evil continued the project alone. Reviewed here is Evil Genius, released in 1995 though it is a compilation of early demo/EP tracks. This is really black metal noise, consisting of raw guitars, gutteral vocals, some drums, and not a lot in the sense of structured songs. Though clearly in tune with the early black metal scene, Abruptum's style is less about music and more about dark, evil ambience, and on that level it succeeds, given the right mood/frame of mind.
