You all know that I'm not too much into Death metal, but when it is mixed with Black Metal, the result can sometimes be quite interesting. Belphegor's Goatreitch-Fleshcult immediately comes to mind as a great album. Undivine is a serious runner up, hailing from Death Metal territory, Sweden.

This quintet counts on two guitar players for maximum metal juice to pour down your ears. Formed in 2005, released their debut, A Deceitful Calm in 2008. Into Dust brings to the listener a cohesive mixture of both metal genres, done in a melodic way. On this CD, growls meet rasps; crunchy riffs meet distorted arpeggios, tremolo picking and solos, as well as moderate to fast paces brought to you by the excellent drumming of Jonas Lindström. Add to this a bit of somber keyboard patterns, samplings, a few of those great doom times and some Black & roll riffs to see what awaits the listener. "From Sickness & Disease". "Sowing the Seed of Downfall" (crunchy riffs), "I Dream Death" (more crunch and keys), "My Name is Legion' (did I mention crunchiness? plus a bit on the bluesy side) are just great tracks where you can find those points. The closing title track begins and closes with hospital machines beeping and evolves progressively into an epic track of great Blackened Death Metal.

Highly recommendable extreme metal release from Scandinavia.
