Deception! It is incredible how limited such band could be! After three albums, more than interesting, full of Nordic extreme and atmospheric Black Metal, the six Norwegians have decided to return to the roots of the style presenting something which was a fashion some years ago! Unfortunately, MACTATUS did not take a step forward with "Suicide" but rather let itself be lead by extreme impulses and no more than this. Hate, violence, death...are themes super exploited which, in Black Metal version, have been consumed during all these years. There is one other important detail to be mentioned: Peter Tagtgren produced the album which means that the recording and mastering are really exceptional. As for the rest, it is just another Norwegian Black Metal band with a quality sound, gifted instrumental performers and this is it! As far as the musical direction is regarded, I guess the album can hardly pass the "examination"...; fortunate is only the interpretation manner. It is probably one album which can only pleasantly surprise those who recently discovered Black Metal life-style.
