Rated 4.25/5 (85%) (8 Votes)

Now that's the stuff. I wasn't familiar with the band's first album, 2003's Profane Prayer, but when I saw it included members of Urgehal, Carpathian Forest, Beastcraft and Endezzma, I had to check it out. I like how they blended insanely fast Scandinavian black metal and very aggressive and heavy-as-hell thrash (those guitars, holy shit) so you get that speed that sometimes made things too chaotic, but the thrash element is upfront enough to give a lot of crunchy, headbangable metal to the speedy onslaught—order to the chaos, in a weird way. Again, those guitars. Heavy and razor-sharp and some highly addictive riffs and a quick little solo here and there, always strategically placed. The vocals are raspy and can keep up with the speed while adding a very dark and evil vibe to the music, further guaranteeing some freaked out neighbours. It's not the most original thing, but it's so damn well done and it's hard to kick it off your regular rotation.
