It's called black metal, not blackened metal. "Blackened" should only be used to describe hybrids of genres, like blackened death, blackened doom, blackened crust, etc. Sorry, I'm a snob when it comes to metal, and I get the wrong impression of someone if these use the term "blackened metal" in the summary, the first thing anyone reads before a review.

I used blackened because this album is far from being a typical black metal record. There are many people to whom Kata Ton Daimona Eaytoy may be the first taste of the band, so I didn't want to leave the impression that they'd be hearing a standard fare black metal album. There are black metal dynamics to be found, but they're mixed with goth and folk influences into Rotting Christ's unique sound, making them a hybrid band. I'm not using blackened as a genre descriptor (which becomes very clear once you've read the whole review), but simply as an adjective.

Thanks Kyle and I intend to. PS, I'm hoping you'll love this haha.

Yeah what i've heard from this hasn't been BM really. Blackened is a perfect adjective, i think.

Digging: Black Flag - My War

I mean it's still primarily black metal, but (as Metalstyles said) there's definitely heavy goth/folk influences. So yeah, blackened metal works just fine.

I'd call it melodic black metal but whatever works I guess

I also have a feeling Crysis will hate this

I want to love this. I really do. But I'm spinning this and all I can think is I wish I was listening to Theogonia instead :/

Digging: Opeth - Pale Communion

"One thing that continually impresses me about Rotting Christ’s latter-day albums is how they manage to sound as grandiose and powerful as an orchestra (without actually having one). The band’s sound is large and thick, and when a melodic guitar lead rises amidst the havoc, it sounds like an aural reflection of a tempest looming over a bloody battle."

"Kata Ton Daimona Eaytoy’s songs are all of equally excellent quality and function as a stalwart body of work that hits the listener with full force."

Very well said, I couldn't agree more

This album also consist a bonus track called ''welcome to hell'' which kicks ashes (as the whole album does!!!)

Still got a few of their albums to listen to, but I'd say this is my favorite as of right now.

This album slays... Just the solo on Iwa Voodoo is worth buying this whole album. That solo laid me out on my ass.
