This is the third album release from the Bolivia based band Bestial Holocaust who formed originally under the name of Nyarlathotep, before deciding to change it before the releasing their first demo. The band were formed around year 2000 and have had afew line up changes, which are now unknown as there is little information on them.
On first hearing this album I thought it would be one that I liked as their lyrics are very Satanic and Anti-Christian based and to be honest you’d not know instantly that it was a female fronted black metal band just from first impressions. At the start there were some great sounds and impressive guitar riffs, sounding very underground blackened death with thrash elements but unfortunately I soon lost interest in this album as it just seemed to repeat itself and become boring...really boring.
The sound and production aren’t great either with lack of vocal range from Sonia Sepulcral. Although she does do an impressive growl and keeps the black metal style going throughout, there was lack of decent drumming or bass too and after afew songs I was ready to turn it off. This is the kind of band I expect to see opening for a much bigger Black Metal gig when there are only like 5 people in the crowd.
This album is poor, extremely poor and especially for Black Metal. This is one album that won’t be making it into my personal collection.
