5.0 out of 5 stars Forbidden Fruit Tastes the Sweetest, 12 Jun. 2005
By A Customer
This review is from: Sexy Death God (Audio CD)
In 1994 Valor returned after a two year hiatus with a collection of songs, billed by himself, as 'a deviation towards things more serpentine, whilst preparing for the year 1999'. Indeed, the themes reflected here are evident in the title of the album: Desire, Apocalypse and Religion. The beauty of decay and the lure of forbidden lust is evident at every turn. 'Sexy Death God' wallows in a decadent aura and lush instrumentation. A hitherto hidden masculinity is conveyed via snaking, tribal rhythms and rocky guitars. The violins and celli, meanwhile, are played with more expression and virtuosity than ever before. Particularly charming is the plethora of percussive diversity, not to mention the heart-rending orchestrations. This is what 'death rock' should always have been about, and it redefines the term in an archetypal fashion. Tragedy, sweetness and beauty are balanced by anger and aggression. Valor and Maitri produce a masterful ride through the human psyche. One of the greatest.

4.0 out of 5 stars Take it with a pinch of salt, 10 July 2002
By 
This review is from: Sexy Death God (Audio CD)
Being a devoted Valor Kand fan, in my opinion this is one of Christian Death's best albums so far. Expect heavy, crunching, admittedly rather dated guitar riffs and excellent vampiric lyrics... to such a degree that I would classify this as a great Vampire Rock Opera of an album. The best asset of this release is the variety in rhythm, in textures and even - dare I say the word - melody.
Valor's home-made cut-and-paste artwork on the cover and inlay booklet beggar belief, but all add to this truly enjoyable album - however pompous and overblown it may be. After all, this is Christain Death we're talking about.
