This is the full-length debut album for this rather disturbed bunch of Black/Death Metallers. Of course, “disturbed” is a relative term, but for those of us who don’t particularly enjoy bondage/S&M, I’d classify our leather-masked friends in this band as being a bit on the loony side. Call me a wuss if you want, I don’t find the concept of getting my skin flayed off while having sex to be very appealing. Musically, this is some fairly competent Black/Death Metal that sort of reminds me of several bands but not enough to draw a direct comparison. That’s a good thing. Whenever I can say that you don’t sound exactly like another better known band, you’re on the right track. I can hear a little Morbid Angel, a little Darkthrone and maybe a little Cannibal Corpse in their sound but as I said before, Arkhon Infaustus sounds similar without directly copying someone else’s style. There are also elements of Industrial here and there (particularly in the last track) which adds even more distinctiveness to their style. The production and sound on Hell Injection is also light years away from their debut EP, In Sperma Infernum. That EP sounded absolutely horrible and when you compare it to this album, it almost sounds like a completely different band. Osmose really scored with this band because if there was this much progress between their first release and this album, then I’m really interested in hearing what they’re going to sound like on their next release.
