Black Metal attack from Desert! - 80%

Trepas, August 23rd, 2004

Since the start of the 2000 years, the black metal has been really developed in the arab's countries, and some bands have out from Algeria, Tunisia, Egypt, Lebanon, Jordan, United Arab Emirates and even Libya... Kafan, with his demo "Injecting Evil In Thy Veins" product one of the first raw black metal demo out from Lebanon. When the legends of nordic black metal just become less and less harsh, and more and more accessible to the homosexual community, we will possibly have to look at the desert for got some good raw black metal.

Kafan play raw black metal in the vein of Burzum ; principally slow, primitive, with a dark atmosphere. But it isn't an other copy of Burzum like we see too much ; Kafan had his own sound. A sound more clear with a louder vocal a little bite similar to the one of Gravew├╝rm (a little bite). For the drum, it is very similar to Burzum, but less repetitive, so, better. The music, mostly gloomy is unfortunately disadvantaged by the production too clear. This out to the music a little bite of obscurity and of efficacity. In the song "Injecting Evil in thy Veins", a female vocal is used in the good way (nothing goth of gay), adding an interesting atmosphere to the song.

So, in general, it's a good demo for fan of black metal raw and primitif. The only bad points are the production too much clear for the style, and the length too short (like the majority of the demos).
