      Carpathian Forest's third album (2001).

      'Morbid Fascination of Death' feels like a wasted opportunity from one of the more creative bands playing in the black metal genre, but a band becoming increasingly predictable and tiresome. There are comparably few touches of the experimental tendencies heard on 'Strange Old Brew,' only really coming to a head in the slightly lazy and overlong demo track 'Nostalgia' that they presumably couldn't be bothered to record a polished version of, while the majority is almost insultingly simplistic blackened thrash, played at a tedious tempo.

      The only songs to stand out from the almost-radio-friendly host of repetitive songs are the more diverse and atmospheric 'Knokkelmann,' the melodic plodder 'A World of Bones' and the consciously different 'Cold Comfort' that ends up being one of the least interesting offerings of all, led by ambient keys and samples. Much better is its successor 'Speechless' that combines the ambient elements with electric guitar and Nattefrost's distinctive rasping vocals, while the standard Mayhem cover at track eleven only serves to prove how comparably weak Carpathian Forest's misanthropy sounds in comparison to the spiteful giants.
