Advent of the Black Omen

Rated 3.57/5 (71.43%) (7 Votes)

Once again, it's no surprise that something as chaotic and violent would be released on Nuclear War Now! Productions since they have a lot of such bands on their roster. This is one of four reissues of Proclamation releases. If you like stuff like Revenge and other chaotically insane black/death bands of the same ilk, you'll probably like this too. The sharp, gargly and completely indecipherable vocals are bound to freak out the uninitiated—or even the initiated—and there's nothing remotely redeeming about those; they're pretty horrible, but that's what they were aiming for, no doubt. Forget about melody of any kind, the music here is a big chaotic mess that for the most part has no memorable qualities whatsoever; I wouldn't see myself being able to identify some random song out of this. The only parts that aren't too messy are some short haunting intros that won't help anyone feel all fuzzy inside; there's no safe place here. ?? If you're in the mood for some completely fucked up black/death, well, this will certainly be a fitting choice.
