5.0 out of 5 stars The most epic, mysterious and evil offering since scott walkers "the drift" album., 11 July 2008
This review is from: Ordo Ad Chao (Audio CD)
Basically in short, this album reprosents pure evil, at its most kick ass. At a first listen of the song illuminate eliminate, I was absolutely blown away, and that was just the beginning. Right from the word go this album pulses away with grim attitude, nihilistic stylings and unholy atmosphere, the end product is like too much acid in a cemetary. The thing that really sets this bands sound apart from countless other black metalists is the vocal offerings of frontman Atilla, he embodies so much evil and anguish few other vocalists will ever acheive. another stand out point is the musicianship between blasphemer (guitars) and hellhammer (drums,) they really have produced the goods. I've noticed on a few other reviews alot have spoken poorly of the recording and production, I think they are all just totally missing the point, an album like this would not be right with a polished pop production, and don't get me wrong, it isn't badly produced at all, far from it, infact i'm bold enough to say its the freshest most inspired production to be found on any modern metal album, the emphasis on the bass frequences and the way the guitars sound sometimes distant are all done to add to the atmosphere and i think it totally worked. Also, Atilla's lyrics are gob smacking, in one song there is even a word i have never heard in my life, "Somnambulism." all in all if you like it dark, atmospheric and eccentric you should check this out, as this is my favourite purchase of the year and right up there next to alot of other true classic black / death metal cd's i own, granted though its not for everyone thats for sure!
