PALE CHALICE
AFFLICTING THE DICHOTOMY OF TREPID CREATION
FLENSER

San Francisco outfit Pale Chalice produce a four-track excursion rigidly exploring the depths of black metal’s abyss with sinister larynx-ripping vocals (“Ascend the Idyllic Sphere”) and atmospherically bleak compositions on AFFECTING THE DICHOTOMY OF TREPID CREATION. This unit’s malevolent blasts of aural mayhem radiate with misanthropic intensity from every tremolo picked riff and rapid-fire percussive movement, resulting in a credible demonstration of demonically driven chaos that gets the point across using familiar methods and often heard nuances from bands like Watain and 1349. AFFLICTING THE DICHOTOMY OF TREPID CREATION is a diligent and disciplined mini album whose eerie outlook leaves no question regarding the self-imposed predilection of evil by Pale Chalice.
