Contra Mundum in Aeternum

Rated 4/5 (80%) (3 Votes)

This is a reissue of the band's 2016 demo—you kind of know a demo is worth checking out when a label steps in to reissue it—and I'm surprised that Flame Acausal seemingly haven't done anything since. They also seemingly have no online presence. Anyway...

This demo is filled with raw, blasting black metal that doesn't do into the "pretty" in any way and is quite dark sounding and a little haunting at times, all in less than a 15-minute running time. I won't go as far as to say this stuff is original because, really, it's not, but Flame Acausal certainly know how to shred the speakers and slice your eardrums with some great quality raw and dirty black metal. Not much point going on about it: if you're looking for a cool little slice of aural hell that doesn't overstay its welcome, this is it right here.
