BAPTISM "V: The Devil's Fire" Gatefold LP (Season Of Mist 2016)
What you hear is what you get. BAPTISM deliver another album that is firmly rooted in Finnish black metal orthodoxy. Again their raw and unbound musical fierceness is counterbalanced by epic melodies buried underneath a shredding onslaught and majestic atmospheres. Yet despite staying true to course there is neither a feeling of stagnation nor of senseless nostalgia. BAPTISM excel in keeping true to their course, while appearing fresh and raising the stakes with their fifth full-length. Side A: Natus Ex Ignis / Satananda / The Sacrament Of Blood And Ash / Devil's Fire Side B: Abyss / Cold Eternity / Malignant Shadows / Buried With Him.
