With Vilest of Worms To Dwell
Released: 2001, Napalm
Reviewer: El Cid
WOW! You might have heard the debut CD for this band, it’s called Domus Mundi and it’s pretty much straightforward Death Metal but if you’re expecting just that then you’re in for a big surprise.
This CD is still has its roots pretty deep into Death Metal, but as far as I’m concerned only the vox is still simple Death Metal. The rest of the CD is so musically complex that it’ll have you sitting on your chair listening to every track over and over again without blinking and even then every time you listen to a song that you heard before you find some intricate new passage that makes you go “wow”.
I think the perfect example of this is “lords of Bedlam”, I’ve been playing this song so much lately that my neighbors already know it by heart. What a masterpiece! The music is a mixing of Death Metal with symphonic arrangements à la Therion. But when I compare them to Therion I must say that it’s closest to Lepacca Kliffoth but featuring a much more mature approach.
This is one of the best releases of 2001 in my opinion and I urge all of you out there to go buy it immediately.
