Label: Les Acteurs de l´Ombre Productions – AO-064
Format: Digipack CD-EP
Released: October 06, 2017
Style: Black/Death Metal
Here we are with ultra aggressive and vicious black, death metal pieces, which could be compared to the likes of Belphegor or Angelcorpse and which characterized also the old Arkhon albums. Great, blasting, ferocious track, filled with killer riffs and such a good performance from both Deviant and Skvm (drums). Pure violence and intensity. Obviously, the other songs have also a lot in common with the Arkhon Infaustus of old, but tempo wise it isn’t necessarily at constant full speed. There is a lot of variation about not only the tempos, but also about the riff style, the atmosphere of the music, etc. Sick blasts come together with almost ritualistic aura, but there are also some quite memorable and even slightly melodic parts. “Corrupted Épignosis” can be even controversial for the old Arkhon Infaustus fans, as this ten minutes long epic monument is instrumental and so different to the black, death metal savagery this band usually delivers. It has almost modern style and this EP is impressive and very well written and performed. It has this epic, but vicious and sick feeling, which works very well. This is a great return and a killer new recording from Arkhon Infaustus. Recommended for fans of Belphegor, Akercocke, Revenge, Angelcorpse, Manticore.
