Finnish Black Metal.
Debut album with members of Blood Red Fog, Odiosior, To Conceal the Horns, Sammas' Equinox,..
Nine songs of pure wrath where not a single note of keyboards was played this time and tremolo leads were kept to a minimum - and even then, only to serve a purpose. Thus, here you will find no artificial "atmosphere" but, rather, strong 'n' stout riffs with layered guitar patterns, prominent(ly filthy) bass, similarly storming drums, and their most violent vocals yet. Suitably, form matches content, as the album's lyrical themes cover classic anti-Christian declarations accompanied by a misanthropic warrior mentality and spitting on modern-day plagues.
Finland continues to be fertile ground for the most elite black metal around, even when some deviate from the (left-handed) path. Here do CAESTUS march, cursing and crushing their enemies on the way to The Undoer's Key!
Jewelcase CD with 12 page-booklet.
