Guest review by
The exploration of the Homo sapiens psyche through musical medium is one of continual and ever more impressive evolution (and sickening transgression), no more so than when expressed through the rotting, psychological blasphemy of England's The Axis Of Perdition. Previous incarnations have seen them embark on vague, uninhibited forays into post-apocalyptic themed, dank, depraved industrialised spewings and harsh, ravaging brutality inspired by Silent Hill (enriched with samples from the games themselves) and Lovecraftian mythos. The dual CD'd, concept outing that is Urfe marks a more focused, dare I say, thoughtful, approach without diluting the sound they so violently carved for themselves.

It still saddens me how under-appreciated this is. Usually by the same people that think Tenements is all that.

Mr. Doctor
Took me 5(!) years to find the proper time give this album a full listening while reading the transcriptions of this twisted tale. An unnerving mix of dark ambient, industrial and black metal. Cinematic and bleak beyond words. Those who enjoy such genres should definitely give this one a full listening with the sharpest attention possible while reading the transcriptions some very kind soul provided a long time ago.
