Although I generally avoid anything remotely Black Metal for both stylistic and ideological reasons, I decided to take a chance on this "Meads go anarcho-punk!" release. Blimey, was it worth it. The Crass meets Discharge artwork sets the tone for a stunning collision of extreme metal and extreme punk. Each track is unique. One could say "My Beautiful Genocide" sounds like Rudimentary Peni meets ENT meets Anaal Nathrakk, or "A baptism..." is Dimmu Borgir gatecrashing Conflict's Conclusion lp, but that would be selling each tune short. The synth heavy nigh on operatic "Man Who Killed For God" is another unexpected twist. We also get a Discharge medley (DISCHARGE! DISCHARGE!), and finish up with "Aborted Stygian Foetus", a cracking industrial tune which wouldn't sound out of place on a Front 242 lp. Remember, the Meads also wear chainmail and carry broadswords. Fantastic. If you are a fan of any kind of extreme music, check this out.
