CD from the southern Italian band consists of 7 long tracks + intro
and outro, mixing Dimmu Borgirish Black metal with some Death vocals
together, symphonic keyboards (though the latter are sometimes too simple),
and some Death SS ideas + a couple of trite movie intros.
We also find a few thrash or death riffs, quite good (just listen to
"A Puzzle of Flesh", a song with the right dose of
wickedness not making you weight its 10 minutes of length), but what
really stands out is the very fast drum machine, esp. in "Excellent
Art of Cruelty".
"Architecture of Perfect Damnation" can be a sufficient
start, even if it sometimes sounds too cold and mathematical. Next time
more class and originality are required.
