(Description by C. Conrad)
Continuing its longstanding mission to propagate the most unrelenting manifestations of bestial black metal, Nuclear War Now! Productions presents, “Black Metal Warfare,” the highly-anticipated first tactical strike from Blasphamagoatachrist. Consisting of members from the revered cults of Blasphemy, Goatpenis, and Antichrist, Blasphamagoatachrist boasts several decades of collective experience in aural combat, which it brings to bear in this inaugural demo. However, unlike many so-called “super groups,” who often suffer from a lack of cohesive vision and execution in their ranks, this unit has instead harnessed the individual strengths of each constituent and has combined them into a singularly focused entity that transcends the sum of its parts. As implied by the choice of moniker, Blasphamagoatachrist has chosen the most direct path in its nihilistic mission, thus forsaking any false adornments that might dilute its potency. There is no curtain of indiscernible noise behind which the instruments are obscured, as is sometimes the case in this style of black metal. Led by the lethal riffs and occasional solos of Virrigus Apocalli, which deliver the pinpoint ballistic strikes from above, the devastating bass of Sabbaoth and battery of T. Antichrist simultaneously decimate the battlefield below. Immersed in the fray, the war commands are performed by none other than Nocturnal Grave Desecrater and Black Winds, whose delivery remains as powerful as ever. These seven tracks of nuclear assault metal represent the best in the tradition of bestial black metal and portend ominous things to come in the future from these mercenaries, who appear to have now only skimmed the surface of their unquenchable bloodlust.
