Norwegian black metal supergroup Ov Hell features members of Dimmu Borgir, 1349, Enslaved, Satyricon, and Gogoroth in its ranks, so already a basic idea can be formulated as to what the output from this unit is going to sound like. Solid yet unspectacular black metal with a vintage edge best describes the overall output of THE UNDERWORLD REGIME, a release staunch in delivering fundamental methods to the point of pining to be declared Black Metal 101. Though most would expect a lot of flash and streams of innovation considering the players on this eight-track disc, this squad instead drops back and opts to stick to a blasphemously rigid formula that stays safe, pushes no boundaries and cruises at comfortably created levels of malevolence drawn heavily from black metalís early years.
