Thy Black Destiny (Century Media)
Enslain Magazine Issue #6
Order Issue #6!  This review included. The first song on Sacramentum's 3rd full-length introduces a perfect medium between chaos and seizability, with powerful, frantic riffs and enough repetitivity to catch the ear. Most of the rest of this release abandons the chaos for a friendlier sound, while still remaining solid and heavy. They introduce more melody throughout, sounding less and less evil, and more like common European technical dark metal. Consider this diversity or compromise, I look at it as their ability to create many forms of dark art. "Thy Black Destiny" is not the blackest release you will be hearing, but it has an intense sound that should be enjoyed regardless. -- Lady Enslain
