Russian Black Metal outfit Nebelwerfer was founded in 2006, Anno Bastardi, and the band's debut album, The Spirit of Violation, saw the darkness of night three years later. The follow-up album, The Aeon of Filth, with eight originals plus a cover of Urgehal's "Goatcraft Torment," offers us hyper-fast Black Metal sung entirely in Russian (even if their song titles are written in English). If you put Impaled Nazarene's Ugra-Karma and Fallen Christ's Abduction Ritual in a blender and added even more Black Metal flavor, the final soup would probably be pretty close to The Aeon of Filth, at least to my old, wax-covered and hairy ears. Yes, this is seriously fast, furiously raging and sulphurous Black Metal, indeed. At times, it kicks the shit out of you while, at others, it will bore the hell out of you because it is a teeny bit repetitive and tedious. In the end though, there are more plusses than negatives. The production is decent and extra credit must be given for the audible bass sound on this album.

In summary, The Aeon of Filth definitely has its moments but as nothing new is really happening, it's also easy to forget the album after a few spins.
