Staff review by
I am not new with the sound of Enochian Crescent, on the contrary, I quite enjoyed "Omega Telocvovim" and I was eager to find out how their next work would sound like. And thus the time arrived and "The Black Church Psalmbook" was released in order to, apparently, fill our world with darkness.

I haven't listened to their debut album, but judging from "Omega Telocvovim" I think that Enochian Crescent managed to release their most mature and well-conceived album up to date since it seems to have everything and in the ideal quantities. They remain a black metal band for sure, no-one can deny it, but the expression of their black metal soundscapes vary from song to song, tempo to tempo and generally through the whole duration of the album, yet without tending to sound too much of everything, they harmonize their ideas in a really good way with the final outcome flows as one. There are times when they express themselves in a more traditional and raging Norwegian black metal way, whereas the heavier passages are not missing for sure, the melody is present enough times and some more death metal driven chaotic passages in the vein of Morbid Angel appear from time to time to offer another sense of brutality in the nocturnally burdened atmosphere. Some sing-along arena-like passages are really brilliant, they raise your adrenaline to the highest levels, at least for me!
