Staff review by
One of the leaders of the symphonic black metal scene, the Italian band Opera IX, is back after a new line-up change and with a fifth album that will undoubtedly reinforce their supreme position. This new album, Anphisbena, shows the perfect balance between the rage of black metal and the atmospheres that only symphonic music can give.

I hope M The bard was suitably punished for the terrible performance on the Bathory cover. The music was well done, the lighter drumming helps make the other instruments sound clearer, but that isn't a growling song, let alone a song that you can get away with bland, emotionless growls.
"Another day, another Doug."
"I'll fight you on one condition. That you lower your nipples."
