Crimson Moon

To Embrace the Vampyric Blood (Abyss Productions)
Enslain Magazine Issue #6
Order Issue #6!  This review included. "To Embrace the Vampyric Blood" intros with the sounds of a moonlit ritual, backed by the howls of wolven creatures. It then leads into a rich array of darkness, immortality, and vampyrism. Though hailing from California, they sound much more feral than most American black metal. The sound is raw, with many pace changes, acoustic guitars, simplistic keyboards, and barbaric drumming. The songs are catchable, and yet require a few listens to take everything in. Come partake in the dark atmosphere that Crimson Moon evoke. -- Lady Enslain
