It only takes two men to create some decent sounding blackened Death Metal noise in this French duo, named Lords of the Cemetery. Christophe Florian, aka L.C.F., on guitars, vocals and synth, and Reno Cavadaski, on drums, together create this vicious two-horned monster with the intention to slay the Christian world even more with their evil and torturous sonic attempts on their debut album, titled Citipati.

Eight songs played in just under 32 minutes is all you get, but hey that already is enough. I am not saying I am glad all the fun is over so soon, but I am just saying those nearly 32 minutes have been well used in terms of nicely executed, and actually at times, a pretty innovative set of songs that aren't coming from the same mold. Mr. L.C.F. who's responsible for writing all music and lyrics has clearly put a lot of time in the songwriting and he has done an admirable job. His guitar work is absolutely phenomenal at times; atmospheric, virtuoso-like and even experimental in many parts. His raw, almost Black Metal type of barbaric sounding vocal delivery adds a nice twist of extra hostility into the songs, obviously bringing down some sweet 'n' holy items of Christianity from the wall to the floor.

I am not going to throw any names of their style in comparison this time. I am just saying Lords of the Cemetery are definitely worth checking out if a heavily guitar orientated and atmospheric blackened Death Metal, with some great and piercing melodies, is your thing.
