Gnostic Holocaust

Rated 3.75/5 (75%) (4 Votes)

Sacrocurse's second full-length shows them unleashing some raw and primitive, muddy black/death that will scrape the paint off the walls. The vocals are nightmarish, kind of a dry, growly screech if there's such a thing. The music can get a little monotone at times, leaving the vocals front and centre and in charge of raping your ears, but when the guitars kick into high gear, you're treated through some cool machine-gunning riffs along with other more visceral, razor-sharp passages that literally slice through your eardrums. It's dark, evil, chaotic, not pretty in the least, and yet they managed to cook up some rather memorable passages that will haunt you for days after listening to the album. If you like your black/death without any frills, gimmicks and other niceties, this will do the trick.
