Bonehunter – “Children of the Atom” LP
The third album from this Finnish trio who take an old school black metal aesthetic of which (in my limited knowledge of the genre) sound alot like Bathory, especially in the vocals, which they then shake up with a thashy speed metal dynamic, kind of like Kreator and Sodom etc. I’m not sure if this is punks playing metal; or metallers with a punk influence. Not that it matters. Like the Joe Peragno (Motorhead) sleeve art, it’s all pretty absurd, but very cool at the sametime, too. All executed with very accomplished elegance and aplomb.
