REGNAT HORRENDUM "Dogs of Christ"
Regnat Horrendum is a 2-piece Russian Black Metal project from the guys who also run Moongates Guardian, along with having experience in a handful of other bands. These two play a form of Symphonic Black Metal that mixes in some Burzum and a more stripped-down version of the avant-garde stylings of Arcturus, which they insist be called Heathen Black Metal. That might make their music sound really interesting, but honestly, even after two or three spins, I can barely remember a thing about this album. There are some unconventional ideas on here that stand out, but not quite enough to make up for how unremarkable the rest of this is. They clearly have the ambition and maybe even the chops to make some compelling and individual Black Metal, but despite a lot of effort, they are not really there yet. Pretty good, but not worth getting worked up over.
