Title: Lair of Necromancy
Genre: Black Metal
Label: Hospital Productions
Throughout the past decade Sargeist has remained a prominent force in the Finnish black metal scene by releasing three remarkable albums, the most recent being 2010’s Let the Devil In
. Riding on the praise of the last full length, they have offered a two song EP to follow it up. Lair of Necromancy
is essentially a continuation of Let the Devil In
, with the same direction and production style. However, this should not be viewed as a con, as these songs are just as effective as those on the full length. The striking melodies remain compelling despite their simplistic nature and the snarling vocals deliver them a powerful supplement of chaos. Although Sargeist’s formula does not deviate from the parameters of the usual black metal style it manages to engage the listener just as any of the classic records of the past do.
