I still remember reviewing these five hooded anonymous' debut album, False Prophecies, for The Metal Crypt back in 2015. In that review, I compared them to bands like Death, Morgoth, Pestilence, and the Martin van Drunen-era Asphyx. It's 2019, and due to some other bands using the same name Undead, this mysterious band has changed its name to Undead Prophecies.

Fortunately, the musical style has remained the same on the band's follow-up record, Sempiternal Void and the comparisons to the aforementioned bands still hold true. Despite some obvious and shameless plagiarism of those bands' sound, they offer something a bit different this time, like the creepy and slowly crawling "The Souls I Haunt", which reminds me of Triptykon's downright eeriness and soul-crushing heaviness. But whenever they choose to ride on the sharpest waves of their influences musically, they are in their territory and can best release dark light out of their cloaks.

The thing with Undead Prophecies is they don't even want to sound original, but rather offer their best tribute to some legendary death metal names. Wanna join this trip down memory lane with them?
