Next review: » Corpus Diavolus - Atra Lumen
Released: 2015, Folter Records
Reviewer: Metal-Rules.com UK Team
Palemoon is the seventh album in Corpus Christii 's extensive back catalog with ten songs of satanic, grim, thrashing black metal.
However this is definitely not the strongest release from the group, in my opinion not standing next to the primitive and grim sounds of Saeculum Domini.
There isn't anything specifically wrong with this album, but there's also not a lot that it does to grab the listener either. It's very much black metal by numbers, with all the varied shades of black, but still doesn't manage to hit the mark. It's too generic, soulless, lacking in atmosphere, with not a strong enough message. The vocals are a strong turn off for me, again suffering from the lack of any passion, with very generic and not thought provoking lyrical content, and dominating too much of the mix.
