Stemming from the brain of twisted genius Vindsval emanates Blut Aus Nord's black metal masterpiece: "The Work Which Transforms God." With such a grandiose album title you'd expect nothing less from the French trio.

Imagine yourself stranded alone in a post-apocalyptic metropolis that's cloaked in a blanket of perpetual darkness and despair, violent storms evoking harrowing winds that crush the dead structures that surround you, all the while you cower pathetically in a tiny hole waiting for your timely death... This is just one of the countless possible nightmares this piece will allow you the displeasure of experiencing. I hate to talk about "atmospheres" when it comes to black metal as it seems a little contrived nowadays but with this album it's unavoidable. So, for the purpose of this review I'll restrict my description to simple, concise words:

There's a reason why they called this "The Work Which Transforms God". Even God would find listening to this to be a transformative experience.

Um... track 10 is supposed to be named "Inner Metal Cage", not "Inner Mental Cage" (I'm holding the vinyl in my hands right now). Guess I'll go fix that.

I think that might be a typo on the vinyl. Inner Mental Cage is what it is basically everywhere else, Bandcamp and all. The "Metal" version seems to be a very recent variant going by Google =P

Track is called "Inner Mental Cage". I am holding the Appease Me pressing of the cd in my hands right now.

Haha weird. Didn't realize they would've made a typo on the vinyl casing. I thought I saw the same thing on the CD casing, but I guess I didn't see what I thought I saw.

Nothing what hasnt been said before but " our blessed frozen cells and "procession of the dead clowns are quite possibly the best songs ever. Just perfect music.
