||Austrian Mutants Korovakill
bring forth a metal band that really sounds unlike any other. It's
hard to describe their sound. Anywhere from Doom to Black Metal and
Dark Metal to Medieval sound, these metallers bring something different
to the table. Trying to pick out a band that sounded similar to Korovakill
turned out to be harder then I thought. So here is a list of bands
that some of their aspects seem similar to: Dimmu Borgir, Emperor,
Borknagar, Autumn Tears, My Dying Bride and Otyg. "Waterhells"
will take you on an atmospheric mystical journey through a tale beyond
the shores of time. Six sunken fishermen have angled their waves of
the great sea into this CD. The band has a great concept for this
album; it almost acts like a play, like in the vain of King Diamond.
Throughout this opis the band uses different voices for different
characters, which adds an aspect to this CD that is rarely found these
days. Just for this idea alone I think everyone should listen to this
album at least once to see what I'm talking about. I give this band
much credit for their inventiveness. The only negative side that I
found on this album is that some of the songs seem to weird to listen
to, but without them would leave a whole in the story. Some of my
favorite songs on this twelve song, forty-eight minute epic are the
title track "Waterhells," "Into the Underwhirls,"
"The Shadowhordes," and "Within the Sunstorm."
If Kovorakill continues to write music in this way, you may see this
band getting well known rapidly. Well done gentlemen!
