The Perverse Worship of Satanic Sins is a vicious poke-in-the-eye split from the Swiss/American band Forbidden Eye and Finland's Anal Blasphemy. Both bands take their cues directly from the second wave of Black Metal, complete with tremolo picking, tortured vocals and corpse-paint imagery.
Anal Blasphemy starts off the disc with three tracks of demonic sexuality possessing subtle titles like "Licking the Cunt of Chaos" and "Sperm of Satan, Antichrist Semen." The vocals of Molestor Kadotus, who is the only member of the band and handles all the instruments, are a guttural rasp that borders on Death Metal. Anal Blasphemy's contribution is a muddy wall of sound that almost completely buries the drums and bass behind a thick, black curtain of distorted guitars. Considering the dizzying array of demos, splits, EPs and albums in Anal Blasphemy's catalog I have to assume this is what Molestor Kadotus was going for, but while true to the raw, dissonant roots of Black Metal, the incessant buzz starts to drone after a while. In spots the drums are nearly inaudible.
Forbidden Eye eschews the overt sexual overtones and opts for a more traditional satanic slant for their half of The Perverse Worship of Satanic Sins. A short into leads into "The Moon of the Blood Serpent," a song that should be just the ticket for fans of bands such as Carpathian Forest, Emperor, Bathory and the like. The sound is much cleaner yet still retains a solid dose of cold evil. You can actually hear the individual instruments and the vocals are a much more familiar rasp. The tremolo picking possesses more thrashy melody though the opening salvos of all three full tracks (not counting the intro) are rather similar to one another. This means Forbidden Eye's songs, much like those of Anal Blasphemy, tend to drone after a while, though in a different, more melodic way.
Neither of these bands do anything you haven't heard many times before nor does either do it in a way that's going to make you forget about your favorites. The Perverse Worship of Satanic Sins is an unspectacular but solid slice of hell.
