Judas Iscariot - Dethroned, Conquered and Forgotten (Red Stream) - Back
Judas Iscariot is a one man project that started back in 1992, and it has developed into a black metal band that has its ideals fixed on how black metal used to be, the classic days. The days of the raw fury, that was uncompromising, and just plan sick. I believe that Akhenaten's (the lone member of the band) style of primordial black metal is among the best of today's raw metal, or any type of music. There is just something to the way he writes his music, everything just falls into place. My favorite track on this CD is "Benevolent Whore, Dethroned for Eternity" it has the rawness of what Immortal used to have in the early days. "Journey Through Visions of War" has the classic, slower paced, raw, black metal sounds, much like the earlier days of Ancient. This song is also another solid track. The forth track on the CD is a cool instrumental track that leads into the last track of this CD called "Spill The Blood Of The Tomb (special blitzkrieg version) BONUS." Any fan of black metal, that never really got into the raw aspect, should check Judas Iscariot out. You maybe surprised of what you hear.
