One-man Black Metal bands/projects seem to be quite a phenomenon these days... Here's one more. This time it is Enoid, a band from Switzerland run by a guy called Ormenos.

Exilé aux confins des tourments is the title of his sixth studio album, within which he takes care of all the instrumentation and vocals. One can sense right away from Enoid's stuff that there's much serious ambition driving this opus, which is shown with his carefully constructed songwriting. The Black Metal herein tends to become chaotic on the level of Emperor's In the Nightside Eclipse at times, but Ormenos also knows when to slow down, such as how he does on "Mangez ma chair, prenez ma douleur," painting his room with slowly dripping shades of black, so to speak. Enoid sounds good when he sounds like Satan on speed, but also when the heartrate is nearly that of a dead man. As much as I would like to like the album more than my Black Metal mojo allows me to do, Ormenos isn't doing anything that special or unheard of under a funeral moon. If you can deal with that and can enjoy your Black Metal as 99% of us mortals are already doing, then nothing should stop you from checking this out.
