Wikka (Devil Doll Records)

By: Jeb Branin

ASGUARD forge a black metal sound out of the fire and brimstone of hell but they temper everything by giving a serious nod to classical music (a JUDAS PRIEST cover also gives a nod to classic metal). I don't know that I have heard too many bands from Belarus (and most that I have heard are punk bands) so ASGUARD tend to stick out from the pack a little bit if for nothing other than geography. Unfortunately that is about the only way they stick out. Musically this is technically stellar but nothing truly distinctive or memorable.
