Rotting Bull- ‘Beyond Ragnarok’
Reviewed by Steve Earles
Seven out of Ten
Already, in a brief period of time, Blackwood Productions show themselves to be a diverse label.
Rotting Bull hail from the region of Durham and Newcastle, and indeed this 7 track release is pure raw crust punk black metal energy. No track outstays its welcome, when the listener has recovered from one track, they are once again pummelled with a savage sonic attack.
There could be as few as two people playing on this release, and as many as 18! For a rare degree of mystery has been retained here. No personnel are given, just song titles.
Rarely has a release so lived up to its title!
