I wouldn't recommend it. Even though the vocals sound reminiscent of them on this album, everything else is much better. I can see this at a 3.5 or so.

Yeah, I was never very interested in checking them out. This was around a 3.5-4 until it kinda "clicked", and now it's a 4.5 for me.

i love how christian black metal is even more offensive than satanic black metal.

I'd never though I'd see they day when a black metal knight listened to something he couldn't handle.

@blooz: I know, right? It's pretty funny.


@Crysis:

Cool, man. I was honestly expecting much lower for some reason.

I feel tempted to check this out...

... but are the lyrics "too Christian"? Cause that could be an issue for me..

Oh the interweb and it's wonders...

A longing for the day of my Lord
A foolish and misguided desire
If you knew you would never welcome this wish
For that day is black as pitch abscessed light
Run as though you’re fleeing Anubis


A bit more awkward than deeply christian.. anyway I'm..erm... "getting" this as I tipe so I should be back with a reting soon enough.

Yeah, well, it's not like you can understand the lyrics anyways.

I'm kinda into theology so I can understand some of them, that's whay I said they're kinda awkward. Some of the lyrics, even while knowing the meaning of the Hebrew words, make little sense...

I think that's the wikipedia type lyrics site (anyone can post them) so I've noticed some jumbled things on there. I think the gist of them is there though.

Also, another thing. Why call it "Unblack Metal"? Why not "White Metal" if they wanted to show how not-black metal they are. Was it already taken by the KKK?

It gets called both. I've seen White and Unblack Metal before. White Metal usually seems to refer to genres other than Black.

Just when I thought I had this "labels" thing figured out... be that as it may, I'm listening to this right now and tbh it's quite good.

Alright I know I said I didn't like "unblack" metal, but I just listened to A Cruel Verse and it was pretty awesome. Definitely surprised me. And I completely agree with Crysis, the vocals sound like Dani Filth's vocals on early Cradle of Filth albums. I might have to check this whole thing out.
