Review


Hard to believe this is the ninth album from Enthroned, where does the time go? After a bit of a slump with XES Haereticum and Tetra Karcist this band roared back with the solid Pentagrammaton in 2010, and this one is another solid if rather formulaic album.

I don't expect originality from Enthroned, but it is really startling how derivative of their own works this album really is, as there is absolutely nothing you have not heard Enthroned do before on this disc. This band may not have a sloppy enthusiasm of the old days anymore, but they execute competent, professional modern Black Metal. They sound a bit more Deathy this time out, but overall this album is enjoyable, if not really tremendously exciting.
