04:50 - The Maratha Also, black powerfully blending with genres of death, drone, psychedelic, doom, sludge and so on. More or less, this past 2 years there has been a trend of experimentation in metal altogether.
04:44 - The Maratha The problem is that Sludge creepingly blends into heavy, doom, black and death. Look at Roadburn for instance.
03:24 - Marcel Hubregtse SLudge is actually already dead since most bands in that genre are copying each other . Savannah SLudge is doing it and so are the others. If you hear mrore than 6 new sludge bands each months you will notice it.
02:29 - Apothecary Yeah you have a point, that "only old school is real, modern bands suck" mentality is still pretty strong among parts of the metal community though, unfortunately
02:23 - Karlabos but then again most death/thrash/sympho fans are more into older bands and don't follow the new stuff very closely... amongst the new metals arising i still feel sludge is pretty strong
02:17 - Apothecary I still think sludge is far from "the next big trend" lol, that's grossly over-exaggerating its appeal to the average metalhead. More people are into thrash, death, and symphonic type shit before sludge, at least in my area
01. Daemonum Lux 02. Satan Holds Dominion 03. Raptured To Divine Perversion 04. Jesus Wept (Again And Again) 05. Thy Father Suicide 06. Misanthropic Race 07. Whores And Harlots 08. Asphyxiation (Hands Of God) 09. Concubina Do Diabo 10. Devil's Black Blood
Some of the songs here are really quite brilliant, such as "Raptured to divine perversion", "Thy father suicide" and "Misanthropic race". A couple of songs are inconsistent and come across as incomplete but the rest of the album is appropriately chaotic and malevolent. A great return to form for the band.
