“The Katalyst Of The Katharsis”
The album stars with a blastfest of fierce, harsh andaggressive BM riffs with some brutal drum work. Nice high speed picking with some brutal bass-lines. With all their satanic power they mold vicious black thrash with some minor Swedish death influences. It surprises me how well–structured these songs are. It ain’t all double bass triggering like most bands are temptedto do in this scene. From time to time there is room for some fierce guitar work which will blow your mind. Anothergood thing on this record are the vocals. Blaspherion roars demonicallyharsh on this record. His vocals seemto be possessed by Satan himself. This is how BM vocals are supposed to be. Ilove how the songs on this album put mein a dark sinister mood.
This is an intense release whichperhaps will finally give Unlight the spotlight they deserve! BM lovers must check out this great piece of art!
