Here we have a band from Italy, existing since 2003. This is their 2nd full length album released in 2015. Before that, they have the "Apocalyptic Vision of Death" demo in 2004, the "Sotto L' Oscura Alleanza" split EP in 2008 and their first full length album entitled "...Of Evil and Torment" in 2009.
Once again, Italian black metal does not disappoints. After the intro which is something like an demonic possession during a Christian mass, Satan himself comes out of the speakers to take your soul, chew it and then spit it in the lower depths of Hell!!! Obvious influences from Marduk and it is going that way until the end of the album! No compromising in this one! Speaking about the production of the album, there is nothing less that I could expect from a band like that. Clean and raw as it should be! The guitars with the tremolo riffing are like chainsaws straight to your face. The bass is a stone wall to cover your tomb and the vocals are probably coming from the demonic possession we listened in the intro of the album! Awesome from the first second until the moment the album closes!!! One more thing that will surely take you by surprise (a good one) is that the riffs at some point are a bit folkish... There are melodies here and there that will take you in a bit of a viking/celtic mood but just for a while. Then it is blasphemous black metal again!
A flawless album by an awesome band. I must admit that I didn't know about them, so I am glad I did this review. Check them out. They are here to stay!!!
