Rated 1/5 (20%) (1 Vote)

This is the second release for this Greek Black Metal band, who used to be called Ancestor, so I understand. I am often skeptical of Greek Black Metal, as I find bands like Rotting Christ and Varathron to be uneven at best. This, however, is a good slab of melodic Black Metal. Archemoron (roughly "King of Doom") play a slow, rolling style of Black Metal with sweeping riffs and a lot of melody and harmonizing. It reminds me a good bit of the earlier Nehemah albums, if admittedly less awesome. The production is solid, the vocals are an unremarkable rasp, and while none of the songs really stand out, they are all enjoyable and atmospheric. A solid album.
