Devilgroth - Sibur (2010)

Russian raw black metal. Sibur is way uglier than its album art suggests. Though a lot of the riffs are technically melodic, the guitars are blown-out and often slightly out of tune, the vocals range from psychotic shrieks to punk-ish singing, and the whole thing has a rough, scatterbrained feel -- fitting for a demo, I suppose. The kind of stuff whose appeal would be utterly baffling to anyone who doesn't already like black metal.
