Black Messiah - Scepter of Black Knowledge

Posted on Thursday, September 09, 2010

Last Episode has once again surprised me by finding yet another talented Black Metal act that isn’t afraid to throw in something different. Admittedly, adding Folk elements (accordion, mandolin, violin and acoustic guitar), female vocals and such isn’t something that’s new, but Black Messiah has managed to produce an album that hints at other bands (such as Cradle of Filth and Emperor), but really sounds like nobody else. The lyrics on this are totally Satanic, and Zagan manages to be coherent enough so that even though there aren’t any lyrics printed in the booklet, you can figure out what most of the songs are about. Besides, with song titles like “Crusade of the Blackened,” “Diabolic Rites,” and “Queen of Darkness,” you really don’t have to guess that these guys follow the left-hand path.
