Jack Frost : Selfabusing Uglysex Ungod

This fifth album of Austrian gloom rock bastards Jack Frost picks up the rope right where they left it with their previous album 'Gloom Rock Asylum'. Fans of this genre should not have any doubt about buying it. Doom fans in general would do better by giving this album a first listen before taking it home.

In big lines, Jack Frost can be described as a mix of heavily loaded, gloomy atmosphere, midtempo distorted guitar melodies and an overall Type-O-Negative like feel. One could describe the music of Jack Frost as being of the same kind as gothic stuff like Bauhaus or The Sisters of Mercy but more metal-oriented. The imagery is very gloomy, torturing, weird and twisted. The album ends in a climax of weirdness with the instrumental song 'El Funeral Del Dictator' that even features an accordion.

All in all a very pleasant album for the not too closed-minded doom metal fan, but certainly not every doomsters' cup of tea.
