SEREIGNOS
SEREIGNOS
Total Havoc
(Satanath Records)
41:27min

I was definitely impressed by this for a number of reasons. The album is absolutely bursting with the raw primitive aggression of the old Black Metal bands of the late eighties / early nineties that existed prior to the attack of the DARKTHRONE clones. This is the genuine stuff, with an unadulterated, take no prisoners attitude. I was truly taken back to my younger years, when one could really expect the most brutal aggression from the underground Black bands from third world countries such as Indonesia, where SEREIGNOS hail from. Musically, they owe more to SARCOFAGO and BLASPHEMY than to anyone else, and they never fucking slow down! Sometimes you can even hear some Punk moments (more so in the bonus tracks). The vocalist sounds like a rabid Gezol and the drumming is so intense (while keeping such raw an edge) I found myself at times wondering whether it was programmed. I love the relentlessness and the craziness. Even the intro puts you in the right mood for the doom and destruction it heralds. The solos have such an almost amateurish yet genuine evil feel to them that nothing else would sound as good, and proclaim all the more legitimacy to these true children of oldschool Black Metal that, for the black icing of the cake, manage to do all this with personality too, not really sounding as copycats to nothing. Check those wild riffs at ‘UN-R’. Bloody hell! It’s been a long time since I heard anything as successful as this in conjuring back, like a ghoulish necromancer, the spirit of past underground days! Words of high praise to them! More info at: www.facebook.com/pages/sereignos/118098664950869, www.satanath.com
