Kibosh Sibyl Kismet - Sulphurous Domain (Promo 2000) (Independent) - Back
Kibosh Sibyl Kismet, an interesting name for an interesting band. The band is from Singapore, anyone that is an avid metal listener would realize that finding a metal band in Singapore would be rare. But the thing that is even more interesting about this band is that they are black metal band. Yes, a black metal band from Singapore. Some describe their music as blackened dark metal, and others consider them heavy metal to back metal. Anyway you look at it, they are an extreme music band. "Sulphurous Domain" is a four or five songs album, depending on how you look at it. But these four or five songs stretch to over thirty-seven minutes of raw produced black metal. Now if you like raw black metal or not, that is up to the listener, but this was very raw. It reminded me of the early days of black metal. Personally, I like to be able to distinguish the different instruments when I listen to music. It is hard to do so on this album. Kibosh has been together since 1994, and with six years together you would also think that they could play together a little better. The songs are average, they get some good riffs going and then they either get out of sync or they change to a riff that seems to dull the song to snail's pace. If you could get these guys into Abyss Studios or to some place where the production could be worked on greatly, then this band might have a start. But for now, put these guys on that back burner, and see if they can get themselves to a boil.
