APOSTLES OF THE APOCALYPSE 3 Way Split CD Review
Feat. BLACK TORMENT (Mexico)NODENS (USA)TYRANNIZER ÖRDER (Italy)

Morbid Metal Records

I met Mexican BLACK TORMENT by Split 7 “they have with RAPED GOD, but I know that they have a very prolific discography since 1998 or something. They are the first on this 3 ways black metal attack, with an excellent mix of power, rawness and darkness. After a demonic atmospheric intro, “Black Dawn” opens with destructive guitar riffs, a solid drums set and furious vocals. I noticed that somewhere deep inside the music, there’s a red stench of raw thrash metal, and this is one of the Trademarks of the band. On “Bloody Signs of Devastation” these crude roots are more visible, and certainly deliver an atomic sonic attack. At the end, these bastards made a cover song from the gods VULCANO called “Gates of Iron”, and sound very violent and precise. Not bad at all. Next noise is from the conational NODENS (now moved to USA), and after the twisted intro of what seems to be an old woman singing a litany (Shit!! This sounds truly creepy!) The music attack is violent and sharp. They created a black aura through very violent and chaotic guitar riffs and the result is a wall of blood and cold fear. “Montes of Doom” is the track that for me represents their chaotic sound, very influenced by Swedish and some sprinkles of early Greek black scene. The last attack is from the Italian horde, TYRANNIZER ÖRDER which from the first track they deliver an interesting black metal massacre, extremely fast and deadly. I don’t know why, for moments the music sounds like a Atari game soundtrack, if you know what I mean. Anyway, everything is on its place, and delivers pure fucking blasphemes and violence behind morbid tunes. It’s a great 3 Way impious attack from truly underground black metal hordes.
