Staff review by
Troy Killjoy

If you haven't noticed by now, France is fast becoming a hot-spot for experimental black metal. Over the past 10 years the ears of several unsuspecting victims have been all but abrogated by the likes of Deathspell Omega, Blut Aus Nord, S.V.E.S.T., Diapsiquir, Peste Noire... and now, Reverence.

Staff pick by

08.04.2012 Finally, Reverence have delivered the album they always had in them. A richly veiled exercise of varied, deeply textured, winding and intelligent modern black metal, deriving influence from contemporaries Deathspell Omega and Blut Aus Nord but ultimately creating something all their own.

At this moment in time Reverence truly embody and exemplify the sound of French black metal.

Rating: 9 If there was an album that just repeated "The Descent" for an hour I would be perfectly happy with it. Seriously Reverence need to put out another fucking album
