Pestilential Shadows
In Memorian, Ill Omen
Style: Black Metal
Release date: September 18th 2009

It isn't and it never will be a genre I like very much. But every band deserves a review and so this landed on my desk hohoho... True, evil, dark, monotonous, cold, dry not too good produced black metal with grunts, growls and snarls.


Besides kangaroos and aboriginals there is also decent black metal in Australia too. The Aussies do a good job, at least for black-metal standards. Wolves in the Throne Room, Mayhem, Burzum and Darkthrone fans will be hunting each other through the woods with their corpse-painted faces full of blood listening to this CD. Others who don't like bands in the genre better step a-side and keep their hands off.


The record will not be worshipped as a milestone, but isn't a waste of time either. The band calls their music "Anti-Human Plague Black Metal", don't say we didn't warn you!
