Review


This is an ambitious and entertaining disc of Black Metal from a band you never heard of. The Beast of the Apocalypse have an unwieldy name and an even more unwieldy album title, but their metal is heavy, raw, and serious. The production is thick without being sludgy, sharp without being too polished. It's pretty much a perfect recording job for this kind of thing. Occult roarings set of twisted riffs and a deep, forbidding atmosphere. The songs do tend to go on a bit long, but they have a lot of ideas to keep things moving. The mix is muddy, and this requires several listens to get into, but it is a powerful album.
