8th album from this now classic Russian band, as always severe and inventive, while adhering strictly to a black metal sound and aesthetic. Blackdeath possess entirely their own sense of rhythm and songcraft. Recommended.
"It is said that the god also known as the Great Architect created the world. Life is his creation too, which is referred to just as “a gift”. It is a splendid gift, of course: soon or late some people kill themselves while other people kill the rest. As if all of them are saturated with some venom [Gift, das]. So it turns out that the god's creation - which is supposedly “the gift” - in fact is the venom [Gift, das]. This isn't a claim for philosophy. This is just an outlook."
