Ok, Black metal is a dying race of metal, just like death metal was in the mid and late 90's. I see so many bands for black metal come and go. I've heard so much about Anorexia, I thought I would at least give them a listen. I picked up Drudenhaus a couple of weeks ago and haven't really listened to it, but after reading reviews for this one, I started listening to it. I really like this album. Its not the usually screeching vocals as in so much black metal. It does have the symphonic feel, but I feel as if its a good use of the synths. Chatiment De La Rose is a very strong song, but it also has gothic overtones, but what black metal band doesn't? All in all, this album is very solid and brutal. Plus if you get a chance check out the Bonus track at the end of the album: Solitude. One of the best on the album.
