Arnaut Pavle - Self Titled

'Self Titled'
Arnaut Pavle
2013

Review by Elek Malcolm-Madill

Genre/s: Blackened Punk, Raw Black Metal
For Fans Of: Sump, Rammer, Horna, Toxic Holocaust, Bone Awl, Absolut,

If you threw Horna and Rammer into the machine from "The Fly" Arnaut Pavle are what I imagine would come out on the other side (not Jeff Goldblum, unfortunately/ fortunately depending on what you're into) because holy shit do these Finns know how to shred, I'm really hoping that all we ever see out of them isn't just this demo tape that they released last year. Using thick, grimy riffs reminiscent of Toxic Holocaust's blending of classic punk and thrash metal along with some great vocals that reminded me a lot of David Kristiansen from Rammer to the point where I'm starting to wonder if these guys are huge Rammer fans because it certainly seems that way, Arnaut Pavle have got some great stuff to come for sure if they don't mysteriously vanish into the night after a few demos à la Cauterizer. The bass is also phenomenal all throughout the album, its low humming audible just above the guitars and drums created another great layer ripe for dissection, the drumming as well was excellently- god, the whole damn thing was excellently done, I highly, highly recommend this one.
