Sepulchral Psalms From The Abyss Of Torment
The first song almost blew my speakers. It´s that fucking loud! Like a stray bullet from the waning loudness war that devastated the scene back in 2005 or something. But also Kingdom itself is devastating. This album is basically 8 tracks of hell fire and brimstone. Devastating like WWII for Poland. Endless cannon fodder. No prisoners. Ok so, Sepulchral Psalms From The Abyss Of Torment is relentless. What else is it? It´s an album that needs more listens to open. On the first go you will most likely remember just the ever present hellish blasts. The guy, SLW, behind drums is tight. On the other hand it feels like all the songs on this album are the same. Only brake from the fore mentioned devastation comes on the last Kingdom´s own song (The last song is ”Cromlech,” Darkthrone cover) ”Whispering The Incantation Of Eternal Fire.” This is also the best song on this album. After all this album has dark atmosphere and those who like their Death Metal unforgiving and merciless will have to check this one out. I who like my Death Metal lurking and mysteriously deadly will keep listening to ”Whispering The Incantation Of Eternal Fire.”
