Third effort from this southernmost Chilean Black Metal horde, and like their previous works, this one gets your blood frozen just after a couple of seconds as soon as the first riffs of the opening track 'The Cursed Cross' starts. Crowned by the hellish screams of drummer/vocalist Kaeffel (founder member and former BEWITCHED drummer), but how can I give you a clearer description about this new opus? Well, for those of you who are familiar with the band's sound, it's a progression from their last album, "A Crimson Terrible Vision" (Trollberg / Rawforce 2003) mixed with some touches of their highly acclaimed debut "Flying Across Misty Gardens" (Trollberg 2002). Razorblade guitars, high speed necro pounding and truly under the skin screaming, but there's also some new elements added to their classic sound. Some Death Metal touches ŕ la MORBID ANGEL, but don't worry, they are not taking the path of current BEHEMOTH (by the way I dislike their "new" sound, I prefer their old Black Metal days). The Death Metal elements are added to the musical structure of their Black Metal style, resulting in a more powerful and solid sound. Also the band has experimented with some speed changes this time. We can find some slow tracks like 'The 7th Visit', a really suffocating near death experience. The production was done by Claudio Salinas (formerly of DOMINUS XUL, current TRIMEGISTO) in his own studio, giving a more professional touch to this highly recommended opus. I hope to see this work being spreaded around soon, because to be honest, this album is one of the best Black Metal ones unleashed from South America in the last years. Check out their previous works through Rawforce as well. www.hetroertzen.com, hetroertzen@gmail.com, www.rawforce.cl
