"Azimuths to the Underworld" (Agonia Records; 2008)
Reviewed by Snidermann
Nechochwen. Donít ask me to pronounce it. All I know is that "Azimuths to the Underworld" is an interesting blend of classical folk guitar and heavy metal. I know that sounds like a strange mix of genres -- I thought so myself at first -- but, after a few spins, I found that I kinda like it.
I am a big fan of classical guitar type music but, as much as I like it, I found that this recording needed more metal and less classical. Now, that being said, I was impressed by the presentation of the recording and have come to appreciate the effort and the preparation put into a recording like this.
Nechochwen has opened my mind's eye to a different version of our genre that I did not know existed and I have to thank them for that experience.

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.
