Review: Naer Mataron – Praetorians 
Sticking to their roots, Greek black metal troupe Naer Mataron unfurl an expected mix of blast beat mayhem, evil vocal croaks and shrieks, and wrath-inducing tremolo-picked guitars on their most recent album PRAETORIANS. This 11-track release maintains the authentic black metal template to a fault, retaining the genre’s trademark rawness sans any progressive tendencies. Making up for the album’s lack of surprises by stirring a hearty cauldron brimming over with pure demonic fury (“Incarcerating Gallantes”), despite the incessant drum blastings and primitive compositions detrimental to some, those hankering for a shot of true black metal will have nary a problem championing this resilient troupe’s latest endeavor. www.season-of-mist.com –Mike SOS
