LIMITED WHITE VINYL PRESSING + GATEFOLD COVER AND POSTER. Deathspell Omega preached the dark essence already some years ago and amongst others like Watain, Glorior Belli, Antaeus and Secrets of the Moon also Corpus Christii from Portugal prove themselves worthy a place on the first row in the Black Metal inferno. The total atmosphere on "The torment.." makes this one a great album. Just like the bands mentioned in the first lines, Corpus Christii manage to deliver us that special dark evil touch. The most significant trademark is N.H.'s deploring and agonizing vocals, recognizable out of a thousand. The sound of the 8 anti-religious gospels is outstanding, leaving a too clean produced "Sworn to the Dark" (from Watain) far behind. This is how black metal should sound and together with Glorior Belli's "Manifesting the Raging Beast" it's the black metal highlight of the year!
