Finnish black metal outfit Sacrificium Carmen is a band that should become known very quickly if their debut album, Ikuisen Tulen Kammiossa, has anything to do with that. The band has a distinct black metal sound mixed with occult metal with an intensity not heard by every band out there. Basically, Sacrificium Carmen sound like a bunch of veterans to the scene with their debut album.
These tracks have the sole intention to melt the listener’s face of with their intensity. The thrash styled riffs add the perfect accent to their melodic parts and give the band a somewhat unique sound that is not heard all that often. While they are not creating their own unique niche, they do have a quality sound that merges various elements of metal together into a solid sound and structure of their songs.
“Pimean Si” is the track that best shows off their riff style which “Kaaoksen K” is the song that best displays the versatility that the band has with their sound. “Nemesis” introduces another distinct aspect with some punk elements.
At the end of the day, Ikuisen Tulen Kammiossa has the makings of a brilliant career for a metal band far more mature than their resume displays. I am hopeful of much bigger and better things from Sacrificium Carmen.
