Reviews: MI Metal Shows & Albums
Here’s Our Opinion.
…an entrancing, yet murky doomed out death metal sound, as if some horror of hell has managed to crawl forth from the sewers and is now hunting for flesh.
The groove entrances you, even as instruments are added, key changes happen, and the vocals embed themselves into your brainstem.
The albums that hit you this hard are few and far between, but the Finnish trio give us another worthy entry.
This is a perfect summer black metal album that doesn’t drain the light, nor does it run towards the sun. Enjoy, my fellow homo sapiens!
The first three songs wrap together like fingers into a fist to strike with thought-provoking potency. If they were a single, it should have been nominated for a Juno or a Pulitzer.
If I were to have more children (I’m not), bits of the album would probably be embedded in their DNA.
Perhaps we could call this atmospheric OSDM, but the atmosphere is one of blackest horror.
With veins of droning terror running throughout, The Wretched Sermon is a riff-filled manifestation of brutality.
As I sit here and listen to this masterpiece a bazillionth time, I realize I still have no idea how to write about it, but as they say, I’m willing to give it the old college try.
The grooving rhythms will have you bopping your head while you wait for the bartender to pour you another. Interesting riffs keep the party going, while you find yourself singing along with Father W’s strong clear voice throughout. Dead End is a party you don’t want to miss!
