Italian black metal mavens Stigmhate stick to the swift and Satanic formula of dark fury on their latest nine-track album THE SUN COLLAPSE. Exhibiting an over the top sense of evil and dread with every blood curdling scream and blast beat/tremolo pick combination, this troupe summons up demonic spirits of the netherworld with bouts of blasphemous explosiveness (“Luce”), warped dissonance (“Throne of Eternal Flame”), and frantic paces (“Plenary Repulsion”). While the approach taken by this seasoned outfit is far from groundbreaking and easily traced to the genre’s upper echelon, the misanthropy nestled deep within this unit’s musical output yields a provocative and punishing end result that followers of black metal should find little fault with. -Mike SOS
