If other bands would use such cheap-sounding keyboard noises, they would get schiit on like there is no tomorrow.
And the songwriting is just really boring IMO.
(just to make it clear, I'm not one of these "metal has to be fast, polyrythmic etc" persons. I really like stuff like this for example http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xgyVSYE1ZzY
It's not really my genre, the fact that it's a style a don't listen to makes it fresh. True it's a little bit like black metal with drum machines and Casio keyboards. But if done well it can come across ok.
It is just well done that's all. At times that's all it takes. Not my genre really so I'm no expert here.
Black Metal has always been about atmosphere and mood. So I think it can be created all kinds of ways. None are right or wrong. It's not true BM and comes across like some European Lord Of The Rings soundtrack, who cares?
