Compilation CDs can prove to be very informative
to the true metal fan. One cool thing about most comps is you get a vast
number of bands to hear a least one track from. It’s how I use to
find out about bands years ago, when I was in my teens. Well same as it
was back then goes for this disc. I definitely found some bands I need to
check more into. This compendium focuses on the more extreme and dark genres.
Hauatagused Karjed Vol. 2 is a black, pagan, and death metal collection
of twenty tracks over seventy-seven minutes. Just about everything is at
least decent, but a couple tracks stood out for me. Raud-Ants’ tune
“Karjasepoeli” and Kamaloka’s “Brutal Accident.”
The music styles vary from band to band but all stay either dark or brutal
with their different approaches to music. I’m sure some of the other
tracks will grab people that have a blackened metal heart too.
