Second full-length album by Swedish Black Metal band.
Vemoth performing an abrasive, no-frills style that is high on punishment and low on innovation. Recorded in the famous Necromorbus Studio (Watain, Funeral Mist, The Ugly), the album contains nine Christ-crushing tracks of old school Black Metal in vein of the era back in the mid of 90’s, with a sound to kill for. Evil chilling riffs accompanied the hells apostles chanting.
The real strength of "The Upcoming End" lies in its sound. This record is loud, tense and bowls you over. The guitars shift between bloody edged, rapid fire melodies and walls of more Punkish Grinding Black Metal. Behemiron's vocals are vicious and loud, crowning the mayhem as they soar off into gates of infernal desolation. The material is consistently fast and carnal as on "Lida", "Without the Presence of God" and "Crush the Christian Lies". A few of the tunes (like the title track) have slower, glorious breaks with some good atmosphere, but even these are hostile.
The mix is swollen and biting and the equal of most high level Black Metal recordings, the band is intense and nonstop on their instruments. Despite the band's level of aggression, the band feels more violent than evil.
For fans of: Necrophobic, Dissection, Watain, Naglfar, Dark Funeral, and more!!
