Extreme in both sound and in deed, Finnish black metal outfit Enochian Crescent have returned from a hiatus of sorts to unleash this ambitious nine track opus on your hapless soul. Aptly titled BLACK CHURCH, this quintet demonstrates its demonic delusions with an arsenal of death 'n roll choruses, manic vocals that switch from guttural growls to wailing howls of pure evil, and a slew of ritualistic chants that give off the impression that a sacrifice is going down tonight. Keeping it offensive and raw yet mixing in a flurry of keep you guessing tactics atypical for a black metal group, Enochian Crescent's upholding of all that is evil is subsidized with rations of unorthodox yet intriguing creativity, giving BLACK CHURCH a distinct edge over its corpsepainted compatriots.
