Synopsis

Album Description
2007 reissue of the second album from the ever-uncompromising Norwegian act Carpathian Forest, originally released in 2000. Considered a cult Black Metal release, the album deals with dark themes of death and suicide, introducing stronger atmospherics at times alongside their trademark brand of raw Black Metal mixed with inspiration from the '80s Black Metal scene and Rock/Punk genres. The band features mainman Nattefrost, who has lately enjoyed a successful solo-career, alongside his main band. Also appearing on Strange Old Brew is Tchort on bass, a familiar name from his previous work with Emperor's debut album and more diverse acts such as Green Carnation. Peaceville.

Black Metal with emotion
Jaron Evil | Canada | 09/24/2004

"The thing you gotta bare in mind about Carpathian Forest is that they are very much into misanthropy and pure narrow-mindedness. They say so flat out. I am a black metal musician myself, and I understand how one might think these songs to be Black metal for punk fans, but I will GUARANTEE you if you approached these guys and said, "hey, your songs are too simple to be true black metal.", their response would be "Thats all you f**king deserve you whiny little b*tch!!" Carpathian Forest, for that reason could be called emo-black metal, since the majority of their songs are about pure hatred and rage, rather than being about impressing the listener with a bunch of technical riffing, epic songwriting, or symphonic back-up. If you're more into technical riffing then I reccomend Immortal. If Symphonic Black metal is your thing, try Cradle Of Filth or Dimmu Borgir. If you want pure relentless narrow-minded misanthropic black metal, Carpathian Forest is about the best there is."

"Black metal, sort of in the vein of Dark Throne! There is a definite Celtic Frost vibe! Good production, good songs! A very underrated black metal band! If you like black metal (their not the symphonic type) then do yourself a favor and get this! 'Black Shining Leather' is good as well!"
