Album Review

Reviewed 2009-08-22
Ear-jarring mix of Black Metal & Grindcore and even Swedish Death Metal made by 2 Brit nutters: V.I.T.R.I.O.L. (aka: Dave Hunt) vocals & Irrumator (aka: Mick Kenney) guitar/bass/drum programming. Both of members are from nihilistic sludge mongers, Mistress. Absurdly fast and abrasively intense especially the screamed out vocals. Within all the extremity there’s a few melodic parts (bits of clean singing some traditional solos) but overall prepare to be assaulted. The band name comes from a black magick incantation in the movie Excalibur and not the more obvious place.

(((1))) Slow, bombastic intro then megablasting Black/Grind with random bits of clean singing & a lot of fukked up distorted vox. A little confusing but not bad.
(((((2))))) FAST & grinding Black Metal with nihilistic gonzo hatevibe vocals. Super intense sound. Perfect neighbor/roommate annoyer stuff.
((((((3))))))) Awesome guitar tone with blazing leads and more of a Swedish Death Metal influence spread upon their melodic for a few bars but otherwise filthy Black/Grind.
((((4)))) Mid-tempo with a modern crunch sound like a super pissed off version of Strapping Young Lad then blasts off to the jackhammer satanic insect grind. Weird.
((((5)))) More Swedish DM odes, brutal over the top grind mangling with melodic solos.
((((((6)))))) Extremely fast but oddly catchy, melodic chorus and breaks/solos.
(((((7))))) Spiraling, annihilating mix of Grind, Black and Death Metal – as if you took every fast part from all 3 and put ‘em in one song. Creepy growled & shouted vocals, later a melodic clean vocal part.
(((8))) (FCC “Fucking” sung once) Very big guitar sound, modern extreme metal sound with plenty of stop-starts and over the top vocals.
(((9))) Cold & classic Nordic-style Black Metal riffs, sputtering drums, throat shredding vocals throws a curve with a melodic solo but drags on too long.
(((((10))))) More melodic yet very savage noisy as fukk, vocal fronted blackend grind massacre.
