Plain offensive Black Metal release.
Here we have two samples of how satanic and abusive a split can get: the Finnish Cult of Anal Blasphemy joining forces with the project Forbidden Eye (Switzerland + US) is always a good surprise isn’t it?
The first three tracks belong to Anal Blasphemy and they bring their trademark Suommi metal in the vein of Satanic Warmaster and some Horna, but with a bit of Urn and a scent of Hellhammer in their not-so-fast approach of sexual ritualistic black metal.
First two songs Licking the Cunt of Chaos and Sperm of Satan, Antichrist Semen are not so different from their previous work binging the muddy guitar sound and carnal invocation through the vocals of Molestor Kadotus who does all the instruments and vocalizations.
But last track called Birth-Death-Rebirth is a 9-minute epic with lots of Hellhammer feelings, mainly from the song Triumph of death but with a strong Finnish accent of course. It’s not just an imitation rather a tribute to the gods methinks. Anyway it’s a fantastic number.
Forbidden Eye brings forth a more traditional Black Metal like Black Funeral, Maniac Butcher or a modern take of Horna. If it brings nothing new, it’s not a flop either. Great tunes done with gusto. Plus the natural way in how they do this kind of stuff lends a whiff of mastery!
There are no highlights but if I had to cite one it would be Hour Glass of Black Tears with its mega traditional Mayhemic sound reaching unbelievable heights for Satanic glory.
This is a split that won’t change the current scene or cause a revolution or convolution in Black Metal… Who said it’s necessary anyway? Go for it!
PS: As for 2014 ANAL BLASPHEMY is no more!
