Listening to this record I see a picture of 'the horned one' walking through the fires of hell with his I-Pod. For once his horrible and hideous face has a little smile on it. He is enjoying the angry fierce full black-metal anthems. The drums and blast beats rattle as skeleton bones in a washing machine, the guitar riffs are heavy and of course the screams and grunts are a blessing for everyone, who likes black metal.
Again these Belgiumís show that they are the black-metal kings in their country, no doubt about that. Since we have no reviewer that really loves all the black stuff, this one ended on my desk. Personally I donít mind listening to true black metal once in a while, but I'm not really a big fan of the genre. Nevertheless, I must confess that I have heard worse produced albums and I am sure that the 'true' black metal fans will love this new Enthroned album. They can easily add 15 points to the rating above.
Posers and wannabee's better leave this stuff alone, you might not survive.
