This is one misleading band. The artwork and band logo gives you the impression that your going to get a good dose of pagan black metal, but in reality they sound like Defleshed crossed with Dissection & Mutant, which are all bands that straddle the line between death and black metal. Also, apparently these guys are Christian, which sort of struck me as a bit funny, since they sure sound like they love the devil.
This album has it all for for that metalhead looking for a little bit more. This band are equally good at ripping off your face and cremating your body, or lulling you into a false sense of security by playing somber, atmospheric passages. The production is a bit too "Neil Kernon" for me at first, but it suits the music well. Check it out...
