THE UNHUMAN THORN
THE UNHUMAN THORN
Sacro-Kvltus Dementis
(Symbol Of Domination Productions / Satanath Records)
40:19min

Sometimes really fine music hits you like a bolt from the black. In this case, I received an album called “Sacro-Kvltus Dementis” for a review. It appeared to be the first full length recording of a Chilean band I never heard of before, named THE UNHUMAN THORN. Without doing any research on them, I wanted to get a short first impression on the album. And got blown away! To be honest, I did not expect too much from that album, but I was utterly wrong. Some cleaner guitar sounds within 30 seconds pave the way for a monster double bass inferno. So much for that “Short impression” - the album got me! The opening title track is a monster song that is on the edge of Dark Death and monstrous Black Metal, spiced with some guitar solo parts in a traditional Metal vein and an unexpected break. That's songwriting in the luxurious way! The following 'Nova-Inquisition' is an equally infernal, utterly dark tune, more Black, more of a hellish crossfire. And 'Obsceno Ritual A La Autodestruccion' plays the melodic Black Metal card, in a way I haven't heard that fine for years. 'Through The Endless Death' slows down the pace without losing the black intensity of the album. In the longer run, the high level of the album lowers a little bit, yet this is complaining on a high level, since songs like the remastered demo track 'The Fall Ov The Weaker' (varying speeds) still keep a very high level of blackness and intensity. And the final hate campaign 'As We Create, We Destroy' is a worthy end to one of the best Black Metal albums of the decade. And it comes from a band that not only is a one-man band with Baal being the only member, but also a band that only released a 3 song demo before “Sacro-Kvltus Dementis”. So, anyone into the arts of the black should check out THE UNHUMAN THORN at: www.facebook.com/theunhumanthorn.chile. And visit their label too: http://satanath.com/sodp
