Council of the Fallen

Council of the Fallen Enslain Magazine Issue #8
With three songs and a total running time of 7 minutes and some change, it’s hard to get much of a feel for CotF’s style. Vocally resembling black metal, and musically a death/black hybrid, this South Carolinan mini-demo sounds unusual for where it’s from, but rather basic otherwise. Sounds like there’s a lot of musical ability, in the well-executed double-bass and speedy guitarwork, and the songs have their moments, but the CD is over before you can grasp them. The speed of the songs surely lends explanation to how quickly they’re over, but I think further development could help each of these tracks out. -- Lady Enslain
