Arkhon Infaustus: Perdition InsanabilisCD, Osmose Productions 2004

Track list: Genesis of Loss - M33 Constellation - Abortion of the Kathavatthu - Six Seals Salvation - Saturn Motion Theology - Oratio Descendere - Profanis Codex LXVI - Whirlwind Journey - Absurd Omega Revelation

French Arkhon Infaustus mixes black and death metal with some cult success. The use of two vocalists (one with black vocals and another with death vocals) is not used to it's best ability. The songs aren't quite top-notch - lots of energy, indeed, but the result is unfortunately quite boring. For the fans of extreme death metal this will be a better catch, looking from a black metal point of view it's a bit of a disappointment, really. **

It's unfortunate that person who obviously has access to great many different albums can't appreciate quality of Arkhon Infaustus' music. To me, it's among the best bands in extreme metal, and among top 3 in black/death. Complexity of riffing and drumming is incredible, vocals are sick, and production quality is very high - in this genre may be only a notch below Belphegor's "Goatreich...". But the most impressive feature - they convey feeling of total, raging insanity as nobody else.

As side note - I decided to check 5* reviews on this page and found Finntroll's "Midnattens Widunder". I can't believe it - how can this simplistic "tra-la-la" with god-awful production (listen to drums!) even start to compare to album in question?
