View credits, reviews, tracks and shop for the CD release of The Underworld Regime on Discogs. Apr 13, · "The underworld Regime" erschien OV HELL bestand aus Sänger Shagrath (Dimmu Borgir, Chrome Division) und Bassist/Songwriter King Ov Hell. Das Duo wurde komplett mit den Session Gitarristen Ice Dale (Audrey Horne, Enslaved), Teloch (Mayhem, Nidingr, Myrkur) sowie Drummer Frost (u.a. Satyricon, )/5(15).
In other words, he sounds very similar to Abbath on here, and it is to his credit. The guitar workings of Teloch and Ice Dale are solid, though more geared towards thrashing crunch and atmospheric painting rather than the melodic character of the latter's work on I and Demonaz. But the cheif attraction, the thing that really brings this album together is the forbidding battery of Frost's kit, rivaling Hellhammer in his fury, yet restrained enough to come off as precise as a surgeon.
Amid the obvious super band tendencies of this collaboration is a solid, albeit highly predictable album that will please many, but probably overwhelm very few.
While definitely not one dimensional and equally suited for the conservative thrash tendencies of the 2nd wave as well as the slower, atmospheric aspects, this album almost uses its adherence to tradition as a crutch.
When hearing both the blasting brevity of "Perpetual Night" and the slower frosty grimness of "Ghosting", images immediately spring up of Immortal's heavily popular and often imitated sophomore effort "Pure Holocaust".
Similar stories could be told about "Krigsatte Faner", my personal favorite of the many chaotic blasters on here, which could almost have made it onto "Battles In The North" had the drumming been a little less precise.
One can't help but wonder how much of an impact Ice Dale had on the overall character of these songs given his associations with both Abbath and Demonaz, but it could just as easily be King's own attraction to the winds of popularity blowing towards the kings of all things grim and frostbitten at work here.
While it might be a little unfair to totally saddle this album with a label like Immortal-lite, that's the first title that comes to mind every time I hear this album. It does all the right things in order to maximize the potential of this template, and even provides a somewhat more keyboard oriented atmosphere, but it doesn't quite rivet down the mighty snow covered mountains the way one would expect of a "Sons Of Northern Darkness" or a "At The Heart Of Winter".
Nonetheless, it is refreshing to hear Shagrath's intelligible yet maddening shouts without having to tune out a bombastic symphony orchestra simultaneously, and it's also nice to know that King isn't dwelling on his past association with Gorgoroth musically.
This is fit for occasional listening within the general black metal guard, but those who have precious little money to blow will want to go for the seminal Immortal and Gorgoroth albums first. In the eyes of all gods in creation, we'll all be judged by the company we keep.
This is no exception. I didn't have any real expectations upon Post Modern Sadist - Ov Hell - The Underworld Regime (CD Shagrath and King ov Hell had gotten together for an album, and I'll be damned if even THAT didn't prepare me for what was to come I wouldn't call this a "supergroup" by any stretch. I wouldn't really consider it musical art. It's an interesting change of pace for at least one of these two podium-standing fools, as I wouldn't expect a person of Shagrath's echelon to put his voice to an album of such breathstealing drudgery, but I know that this is exactly the kind of thing his playmate excels at.
King ov Hell's a talentless hack, there's no two ways about it, and there is nothing he does as a composer and performer that's interesting in the least, from Gorgoroth to this to any other attempts at black metal he'll no doubt undertake, despite his elbow-rubbing with some of his genre-based elders and strutting his stuff like a hanger-on with the cool kids and subsequently being despised for it.
I know I sound harsh, maybe even vengeful, but never in my life have I heard a black metal album so completely devoid of feeling and honesty, a product created purely to BE a product, with nothing to show for it in the end but a superiority complex topped with a contemptable sneer. That's exactly what I get from this album, outside of its already established sense of two-dimensionality.
The problem with being aware of who you are or rather, who you THINK you are is that, in the creative field, your output suffers for it. If Kingy-boy actually puts his heart into his music, the chance exists that he'd be able to make something really spectacular. Not this time, though. Between the plodding guitar riffs, the washed out bass, and the pitter-pattery drums, there's nothing here that's not seen betterment by other people, even those not even considered part of his personal coolness crew.
And even Shaggy, with his robotic drones and croaks, Album), doesn't do anything to make this whole ordeal easier on the ears but then again, he's just as guilty of hackery as the King is, so it's more a "tomato, tomahto" thingleaving multiple sensations of numbing ennui in the form of "Post Modern Sadist", "Perpetual Night" and "Acts of Sin".
It's albums like this that doesn't put black metal in a good light but then again, there are a LOT of other factors in play in that regardand in this day and age, the genre needs more than a couple of dudes pushing their swelled heads through the door and believing that they're a pair of corpsepainted anti-messiahs. So in the end, this is not necessary, and something I don't think should've come to existence in the first place. No amount of pandering and nose-thumbing would make ANY album of ANY style work, and the lack of honesty so burgeoning in "The Underworld Regime", which is now becoming the new black in the black metal world, only serves up derision, pointed fingers, and accusatory curses on blabbermouth.
Now, unlike some of the more commercialized variations of the genre, this album does have one thing going for it: it undoubtedly is black metal. This album did leave me a bit confused initially. First of all, the main problem with this album: the songwriting.
The exact same guitar tone, the same vocal patterns which were admittedly designed for God Seed with Gaahl, who, fortunately for us black metal fans, decided to go away and the same production sound, this album truly is Ad Majorem Sathanas Gloriam version 2. This is the exact same thing but less adventurous and more pedestrian, almost like King designed each and every riff in order to be sure not to offend anybody at all.
Such an approach is sure to kill every single bit of atmosphere that any good black metal album must have. There are no highlights whatsoever on this album except for those few scattered moments when a good riff surfaces. This entire project could be a parody: the name, the band pictures, the album cover, the song titles, nothing can actually be taken seriously, or at least, nothing here gives off that feeling of actual, honest black metal which even actively bad bands can usually create.
The whole band image may have been intentional in order for King to create expectations so low that anyone hearing this would be impressed, but people who can appreciate real black metal with heart and talent should be able to see right through this pathetic charade. And with instrumental accompaniment from Teloch and Ice Dale on guitars and Frost on drums. This group came about from the dissolvement of God Seed with Gaahl and King ov Hell after the declared rightful ownership of the Gorgoroth name which Infernus triumphed upon within court sessions.
The 1st track "Devil's Harlot" is my number one favorite track off from the album. It's makes the album start off fast-paced with no remorse. It just drives right through like the nails inserted into Christ himself.
There are other song favorites of mine on here but I don't want to drag on all about that here at the moment. This new roughly 37 minute long Black Metal art was a surprise to me when I first heard about the news of the formation of the duo group.

Shagrath says: "With both of our demanding music careers and other projects, timing was not on our side.
Over the course of the past year, King sent me demo ideas that were so inspiring it made me put my skeptic feelings aside.
I wasn't sure if I wanted to have another Black Metal project but my unquenchable thirst to explore my darkest beast, launched the birth Ov Hell. The majestic Ov Hell has become a band that reflects our roots, raw, ugly, and arrogantly Post Modern Sadist - Ov Hell - The Underworld Regime (CD with uncompromising truth from two influential Norwegian musicians needing to express our primitive side, straight out Ov Hell.

The Underworld Regime est un album d'une durée idéale, 37mn ni trop longues ni trop courtes, qui m'aura surpris et qui n'est certainement pas une bouse.
