SPITE EXTREME WING "Magnificat"

Although there is nothing new to amaze us, Argento's music (ANTROPOFAGUS) discharges an incredible force able to transpose me back in time right at the roots of unconventional Black Metal, Nordic one. This is a mixture in lack both of creativity and modern atmospheric aspects reminding me of bands like ENSLAVED, DARK THRONE or even BURZUM. Fog's drum (ex-SACRADIS) simply takes over the atmosphere and it is extremely fast, Azoth' bass (ex-ESMEGOR) is grave while the keyboard's effects only fill the parts that tend to be monotonous, Argeto's voice is really imposing and quite perfect for both Black and Death Metal. This Hypnotic Black Metal featured by the Italian band manages to be a successful replica for the up mentioned bands but nothing else. The CD booklet is pretty nice, the cover is rather mystical and everything seems to be occult pagan and darkened. I believe this concept is much more profound than I actually characterized I these few words, but those who really want to explore any further I am sure they will discover a parallel word based on a spiritual esoteric dimension. This is an album that might challenge in one's mind the original genuine message of Black Metal of last decade, which unfortunately during the years has been altered by trendy options.
