"Prakeikimas" (Ledo Takas Records; 2005)

Reviewed by Snidermann

I know absolutely nothing about Lithuania and completely zero about their music. So I searched the Internet for information on my current review project, Dissimulation, a black metal band from Lithuanian. 

I write a lot of reviews, here, but I know basically zip about the many various metal sub-genres (i.e. death, industrial, black etc.) -- I just write about music that attracts my attention. So, as I am checking out Dissimulation, I discover a highly talented band who write some incredible music. Dissimulation could, and should, score music for movies; it's that well done and has that complex sound.

As for the lyrics, well, I can't understand a single word. They are all Lithuanian. Not that it matters because, although I may not understand what the band is saying, I certainly understand the emotion and passion beneath it all and that's good enough for me. 

This band kicks ass. They're hard and heavy and, although some of the songs start light, all it takes is a little patience and the meat of the song will come out soon enough. 

I don't know what the CD's title, "Prakeikimas," but I do know that this band rocks.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
