Bone Awl are what happens when you take Ildjarn-esque raw Black Metal, make it filther and pump it full of Oi! (I assume, I don't know much about Oi! but I hear distinct Punk influence and I'm going with what M-A has to say about it). Bone Awl sounds more urban too, it's more in touch with the urban sprawl of America, than the Norwegian hinterlands that Ildjarn drew his influence from. If you like Ildjarn or raw, hypnotic Black Metal, check this out.
