The production is very raw and very muddy in places on “Infidels”, the latest CD put out by Finnish black metal kill team known as Impious Havoc. These guys eat, breathe, live and reek of old school black metal, which can be heard here. “Infidels” is more within the vein of early Celtic Frost mixed with early Sodom with killer touches of Carpathian Forest/Opthalamia, maybe even in a little of Vondur.
The vocals are somewhat raspy, with that choking-type of feel, and the music is driven by pure darkness and depression. This is a great soundtrack to your unholy demise, should you wish to take that route. The nine tracks on here are unique to a certain degree, but retain a common thread of evil found on all of them. How fucked up can life be for some people, but Impious Havoc tells it like it is and do not sugar coat anything on this primal, raw, anti-Christian blazing black metal hell.
Nothing out of the unique, but this shit is blacker than black metal will ever be, ha, ha. [Aphelion Productions] Sarjoo Devani
