Black Force Domain

Rated 4.15/5 (83%) (20 Votes)

Ahh, just as "Works Of Carnage" is coming out, we get a well-timed re-release of their debut from way back in 1995. Very cool of CM to keep the original B-Grade Blasphemous cover art and not try and 'update' it. Plus they threw in some bonus cuts to boot.

This is a Krisiun album, so you know what you're getting. "Black Force Domain" sounds pretty much like "Conquerors Of Armageddon" with a grungier production job. I wish there was more to say about it than that, but there is really nothing you haven't heard on other Krisiun albums. I kind of like the more underground recording, certainly better than the crappy "professional" job on "Ageless Venomous". It does make the music sound more vicious. But the vocals are mixed a little too loud, and so half the time you can't pay proper attention to the music. I always wonder about that: I mean, we can't understand the lyrics anyway, and most grunters sound alike - why would you want to mix the vocals so loud? I don't get it.

This is a decent Death Metal CD, and it's enjoyable enough, but it's really for Krisiun completists only. If you wanted to start with a Krisiun CD, I'd say start with "Conquerors..", because this one is strictly for fans.
