On this split with two of the most promising new BM bands in The Netherlands both bands bring their A-game to this split. Laster's part is intense and furious whereas Wederganger take their time on brooding midtempo pagan black.
The first full-length after the promising demo makes true on all the promises. The production value has gone up and the songwriting fleshes out. The grey mass of distortion becomes the foundation of more experimental music with noise, piano and obscure dance music.
The first offering of Dutch Laster has it all: A 20 minute slab of monotonous grey melancholy layers of distortion, pounding drums and a singer who screeches from the darkest places of his soul. Top it off with a philosophical theme, and there you have another great BM band.
