Weri Ioca Waluo

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

Finland has always had a decent Black Metal scene, ever since the beast known as Beherit started sharpening its horns in preparation for conquering the world.

Finland's Sawhill Sacrifice, born under a sinful full moon in 2009 Anno Bastardi, are still on their way to crucify God's bastard son with their blasphemous Finnish-sung Black Metal terrorism. Sawhill Sacrifice's debut album, Deus Humana Satanas, which was released in total darkness in 2013, received a positive response among those people who have had their crosses turned upside down since the day they quit breast-feeding. On that opus, they tried to get their message of pure evil communicated using English but on the band's follow-up record, Weri Ioca Waluo, they have switched to their native language.

On this nearly 50-minute opus, the Sawhill Sacrifice bunch shows they know only too well how to kill the God, rape the nuns, praise the goat and burn the holy ground to ashes. They kept the same elements that were found on their debut; cold, fast, versatile and, at times, even melodic, Dissection-tinged Black Metal. They could have trimmed some of the songs to make this record more compact but, on the other hand, a lengthy song like the album's closing track, "Paha" ("Evil" in English), makes for a most interesting and magical end to the album, with its epic and very atmospheric sound. There's a hidden track with guest vocal appearances from Finnish Black Metal hordes Azaghal and Hautakammio, from The Crescent, just to make things a bit more exciting for the consumers of the black arts.

Let the black flames shine... let there be pain, ice and evil in the end.
