Provenance of Cruelty (Napalm Records)
Enslain Magazine Issue #6
Order Issue #6!  This review included. What we have here is an intensely dark listening experience. This album, the second release from these blackened souls, was quite perfectly mixed by Samoth (Emperor), allowing all the intricacies to be highly pronounced, while blending smoothly with all else. And yet, it still takes a few listens to fully grab everything that is going on on this CD. This album has all the darkness you could need, from your war-like intros, to your eerie, synthesized, gloom-inducing blackness. Vocalist Hate growls out the pure satanity that themes this already evil release. "Provenance of Cruelty" is an excellent black metal release, and worthy of becoming a classic. -- Lady Enslain
