Our second installment of Crepusculo Negro releases is from a new project out of, you guessed it, California. There are groups of people who think they called the decline of authentic, underground Black Metal and started to comment about it, but it just still hasn’t happened. It is because of bands like this. The vocals are absolutely painful and the mountain of riffs manifest this album, along with violent drumming, into the manic and aggressive beast it is. I really think both of these new CN tapes deserve longer reviews and I know most of the “fans” here don’t read the reviews anyway, so I will save the rest of my thoughts for my Pure Stench rambling. For everyone else, just download it and enjoy!

One of the newer  Black Twilight/Crepusculo Negro bands who now keep company with other California bands such as Volahn, Axeman, Arizmenda, and a few more. This is Odz Manouk’s first offering and it’s due to sole member Yagian. The music is top shelf Black Metal. It’s Patron to the leagues of mediocre, Cuervo Black Metal these days. It has atmosphere without being atmospheric. It’s layered but doesn’t quite reveal how so. It fits nicely into the Black Twilight mold musically, geographically and in feeling. Top Shelf Black Metal! This shit fuckin rules! I hope more’s to come!!!
