The Calling Depths

Rated 3.8/5 (76%) (5 Votes)

The United Kingdom's Lvcifyre play some sincerely evil Black/Death Metal on their debut full-length album The Calling Depths. The staples of each genre are present from the unholy growls of singer/guitarist T. Kaos to Menthor's blast beat drums. Lvcifyre's music may be easily recognizable, but is, by no means, boring or generic. The songwriting is top notch and Lvcifyre does a fantastic job of creating chilling, haunting and downright scary songs. Kaos and fellow guitarist Dictator sound as though they are strangling their instruments and the sounds they generate will raise the hair on the back of your neck. Tempos are mixed up so that the atmospheres can breathe before reaching for your throat. If there is a complaint it is that the production is thin at the bottom end.

"Holy Chaos" and the title track stick out, but the entire album is an enjoyable nightmare of Black/Death Metal. Great start for Lvcifyre.
