With grim reliability, ARCHGOAT discharge yet more pustulant diabolic foulness into a world increasing moulded in their image.
‘The Luciferian Crown’ is a frighteningly-focused vision of hellish corruption, unsentimental, morally abhorrent and steeped in a violent horror all too real.
Contemporaneous with the uncanny classics of Finnish death and black metal – ARCHGOAT share the same penchant for mind-altering atmospherics, blurring the mystical song-craft of first wave black metal with guttural punk, primitive thrash, the sonorous barbarism of vintage death metal and grindcore that reeks of putrefaction.
Since forming in 1989 ARCHGOAT have revolved around an inner circle all their own, refining their idiosyncratic primitivism - ‘The Luciferian Crown’ is a mirror crushed against nature, a portal through egocentric decadence into the pile of tortured corpses in your psyche.

Deathspell Omega has been lauded for what seems like ages now however I didn't personally listen to them much at all until after this release, instead preferring to stick to more traditional "orthodox" BM..
Long story short I'm forever grateful to our Dark Lord that I decided to expand my horizons because this as well as every other album in DSO's catalog is an absolute masterpiece and every fan of extreme metal music(not just Black Metal) owes it to themselves to check them out.
The Furnaces of Palingenesia is stunningly innovative how it transforms what appears to be harsh disconnected noise into melodic beauty through weaving indecipherable and indistinguishable dissonant threads together into a tapestry of melodic perfection that checks all the right boxes and can only be described as art. Consequently, you'll discover that every subsequent listen will unearth new layers that you seemingly didn't hear before.
For the best experience, listen alone in a dark room with headphones (preferably light up a fat blunt) and give yourself up wholly to the music. Let the deeply malignant and yet blessedly euphoric aura of dissonance overtake your pathetic soul.
Blessed is he that murders Christ in himself and in his fellow man.
Amen. Matthew Kokinda

Satanic Warmaster's re-recorded tracks are pretty good. The synths, the higher speed and the improved drumming give the old tracks a new dimension of quality. Also, "Satanic Winter" is much better than the original by Pest, which was released aeons ago on "Black Imperial Pornsign" demo. That's none of your business.
