When I write about music, I try to avoid cliches as much as possible. (Or when writing in general.) One particular cliche that is rampant in the world of music criticism is calling a piece of music "well-crafted"; these are musicians, not blacksmiths! But listen to the opening track of Eldir Nott, "Vigil," and tell me that that Fyrnask haven't mastered the "craft" of repugnant, yet absolutely gorgeous black metal. Look me in the fucking eye. (Or show me something you like better. I can't hear everything.)
