Azmodan - Evil Obscurity

Posted on Friday, September 03, 2010

The vocals on this are fairly brutal for Black Metal, but they also have a tendency to be understandable - a trait that you don’t usually find when a band employs the deeper growling style. There are lots of atmospheric parts as well as female vocals, both of which give this album sort of a “horror movie soundtrack” quality at times. I first thought that this was a concept album due to the fact that first two songs are both about the demon Azmodan (the lord of sin, according to the lyrics) but the rest of the songs are unrelated. All the songs, except the third, clock in at around 6 minutes, with the first two tracks taking up the first twenty minutes of the CD! Azmodan are not only proficient but memorable as well.
