Dogma, Panchrysia's fifth studio album, is pretty original Black Metal that attempts to be different from your typical Satyricon copycatting. On "Gilgamesh", for example, the band introduces us to their avant-garde side, while on "Kairos" we can hear where the comparisons to Satyricon come from. "28 Steps" is again a straightforward Black Metal song, in which they have used Black Metal's most common recipe. The album's best surprise is saved for the last. The intro part of "Rats" throws the listener into some gloomy pub filled with smoke, while some sort of laid-back Jazz is playing in the background. After a minute or so, all hell breaks loose and you get punished by these Belgian's hostile but upliftingly varied blackened onslaught, which breaks from the mold of your typical Black Metal track. These fellows have often been accused of ripping off Satyricon, but I guess they are slowly getting rid of that label.
