The Divine Tragedy

Rated 3.5/5 (70%) (4 Votes)

This is a debut from US-based one-man band Avichi (named for the worst hell there is in Buddhism) who feature the most illegible logo I ever saw. Despite the obvious pretentiousness at work here, this is actually a very cool disc. This band (or guy) are all about mid-paced, epic Black Metal without any of the stigmata of modern BM. The riffs are good, the sound is good, and the vocals are a low bellow that mixes well. The disc does go on a bit, and several of the songs could have been shorter, as Avichi have a tendency to run ideas into the ground. But overall, a very strong debut of 'philosophical' Black Metal that is certainly worthy of attention.

Track Listing:
  1. Entrance to God
  2. Purification within the Eighth Sphere
  3. Messianic Deliverance
  4. Phallic Insinuation
