PERDITOR - IN SIGNO SUO - ORDEALIS
Perditor is the twenty-first century's answer to Venom. The band's rumbling and wild black metal tastes like Venom as it smacks you in the mouth song after evil song. Vocalist Azazel, in particular, sounds like Cronos although Perditor mixes in quite a lot of rambling backing vocals. The music comes across as having been recorded live in the studio which intrinsically adds to the unpolished experience. Songs like Hellstorm, Chaotic Demonic Raging Madness and Empire Of The Black are no frills fiery black metal for the more discerning demons out there. Kudos to Ordealis for releasing something which has as much a chance of selling well as King George has of finding weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. Bluuurggghhh! - Ali "The Metallian"
