Prosanctus Inferi is currently a one-man-project, run by J. Kohn, of Black Funeral 'fame'. I vaguely remember not liking Black Funeral, but Prosanctus Inferi is a whole lot better. Pandemonic Ululations Of Vesperic Palpitation (repeat that three times, flawlessly of course, send me the audio recording and I'll personally come to your hours and cook you dinner - if you're a woman.)

Uhhh, where was I?

Oh yeah. PUOVP mixes Death and Black metal in a gritty and dank, uhhh, mix, preaching evil and violence. So far so good. Unfortunately their style is much more straight-forward and rarely as obscure as my cherished Necros Christos and Teitanblood, but that might not be bad news for everyone. The consistent rotten vibe is spiced up with cool lead guitars here and there. The growl is low and a bit slow. It's all very down-tuned and old school. In general, the attitude of the man seems sincere. However, not everything song has what it takes to standout and when that's the case, consistency quickly changes to monotony. PUOVP is victim of this to a certain degree.

In the end, it's still a heartfelt, enjoyable album. I can't imagine these guys ever getting their 'big break' and a mainstream audience, but it's certainly an album worthy of underground recognition.

Oh man.... And I'm quite hungry right now!

Even if I was a woman, I totally failed because a few minutes ago I said the album name out loud and I couldn't finish it because I laughed my ass off because it sounded retarded... Ululation is a funny word, that's what I learned from this review.

I think we can agree that Kohn has one too many word-of-the-day calendars in his home...

Why does any song need titles like that? Is it really necessary to explain something like a song title to that extent? It runs the risk of ruining itself with pretentiousness.

Mr. Noise
I was informed that J. Kohn is only a really collaborater with Black Funeral, which is still largely Michael Ford's vehicle - so that comparison is a bit off, sorry about that.

WTF about the song titles... The song titles in themselves are lyrics for the whole song or what? Man I succeeded at telling this three times flawlessly but it sounds fucking stupid so I am not gonna reclaim my prize,,, Oh and I'm a man, so let's just say I didn't write this comment.
