Review


Fans of melodic, textured foresty black metal - cower in fear, for Revenge has returned to utterly rape your senses with another onslaught of hateful violence. Once again, the demented duo of James Read and Peter Helmkamp have destroyed the boundaries of music while beating their instruments into a splintered mess to deliver just under a half-hour of supreme genocide superion antichrist chaos metal.

This album shows no progression at all from the barbaric slaughter of Attack.Blood.Revenge and Triumph.Genocide.Antichrist. No, all Revenge have done here is create another 8 unpleasant outbursts of impenetrable nail-spiked blizzards hammering away with supreme fury. Frenzied drum chaos and throat-shredding screams form the main axis of the band's sound, while the heavily distorted bass and thin razor-sharp guitar underpin the chaos - mostly creating squalls of noise, but occasionally gelling into a coherent riff to break up the mayhem.

Anyone looking for dynamics or subtlety would do well to stay as far away from Revenge as possible, because you won't find it here. This is primal, atavistic violence for the sheer hell of it, making no apologies for mercilessly raping the rotten corpse of music as a whole. So, take it or leave it - I doubt the band gives a shit either way.
