Supernal Music, 2003
Second full-length album from one of the most creative English Black Metal bands around today. After 2002´s extremely successful "Jihad" split with MAYHEM, released in 2002 first as a limited picture disc and then as a CD with bonus tracks, the new material features rawer guitars and, at the same time, more varied and ingenious orchestration. Just about anything and everything is thrown in here, although woven into a melodic Black Metal framework with such skill and panache that the musical flow is able to bring an endless stream of surprises (and even some truly bizarre moments) in a very refreshing and enjoyable way. This album is themed after the infamous carpenter-turned-teacher of Nazareth; a man whose radical ideas developed into a personality cult and, finally, after being Hellenised, Romanised, and Celticised, into a corporate religion - with him as a god - with over two thousand million slaves around the world.
Guest artists include Mirai Kawashima from SIGH playing keyboards and Vincent Crowley from ACHERON providing the narration.
