The Saints Of Blasphemy-1: Baptized In Blasphemy
June 2013
Released: 2013, Extreminal Productions
Rating: 4.0/5
Reviewer: UK Team

If there was ever a band that used the term "black metal" purely because they use the typical BM vocals, it is Neldoreth. Opener Obimination Proclaimed Through Heresey starts of as anything but black metal, with a hard rock 70s feel instead, it's only until the screeched vocals appear that it becomes apparent that one is listening to an extreme metal release at all.

However, I could never use that comment in such a complimentary fashion for any other band. This album, first in a trilogy of three, is simply a refreshing break from what us reviewers receive again and again, dull, boring and generic Darkthrone Worship without a hint of originality. As much as I hate to displease the dark lord, this album is just fun! The guitars have a serious punk vibe to them and the Satyricon style dirty attitude gives the record the edge above most other rock n roll vibed releases in the genre.

The band does start to take a slightly more brutal approach on tracks such as Christian Depotism and Baptized In Blasphemy, but these tracks do not lose the charm of their lighter counterparts. A greatly enjoyable listen throughout.
