"Desecration of the Holy Kingdom" represents the most morbid necromantic invocation of Blasphemy and Sarcofago and others like them that had yet been summoned forth. No other band fully captured these bands? intense and ritualistic goat worship with the same violence and insane dedication to chaos. And yet, while the influence of these bands is undoubtedly found within their work, Black Witchery defined their own sound relying upon their mentors merely to establish a stream in which to create their own dark current. Black Witchery's sound on "Desecration of the Holy Kingdom" is furious and focused.Black Witchery represented a return to the strength and ferocity of form that was being forgotten in underground metal, and with "Desecration of the Holy Kingodm", Black Witchery ushered in a new era of Satanic hatred. Now, as the end of the decade draws near it is clear that much has changed. With the advent of all of the technology around us, change takes place with greater rapidity than ever before. Genres and subgenres of metal rise and fall in the duration of a single season. It requires tremendous insight and a genuine understanding of the music to create a truly timeless album under these conditions. This is a feat seldom accomplished now, however, "Desecration of the Holy Kingdom" undoubtedly is such an album. It is a sacrifice to the older Gods in order to summon all of their might and channel it to call forth an array of lost and demonic voices. Become possessed by these voices once again.
