After a few tape releases (has actually released
3 full-lengths under this name previously that eventually made their way
to disc) on some more obscure labels, Vociferian
now make their most official debut on Infernus Rex. This is a one-man project
that focuses on extremely occvlt sounding doom/death metal. UHDU is Lord
Genocide’s first MCD and contains 5 prophetic hymns of hate, providing
over a half hour playing time. The last track is the only big standout.
It basically contains all electronic, distorted music that just goes on
continually for over 16 minutes. The other 4 songs are more doom-laden with
low-grunting vocals for the most part (some higher ones), but they also
have a muddy sound much like a lot of raw black metal bands. Very old-school
like a combination of Incantation and Beherit. Not to mention, evil as fuck!
Not a bad introduction, but could be a bit more focused. Y'know, more keys
or electronics to make the last track a less standout and more in the mix
of the other 4. Then I think this is really good. Not that bad, though...
