Apostasy – Cell 666

up_032904_apostasyIt’s really encouraging to see bright, young bands using such unique monikers as “Apostasy”. Not quite as encouraging though is 98% of the black metal genre from the last ten years, this Apostasy included. I’m one of the last people you should ask about frilly, keyboard-raped black metal, but I almost feel like an expert after hearing this, their 2nd official CD, since it must be one of the absolute hallmarks of the style. The massively sappy keyboards rob this recording of all aggression and most of its heaviness, but Apostasy probably doesn’t care about that stuff. Norwegian products rarely fail to induce sleep, I’m afraid, and “Cell 666” is no exception. – Brian Woodworth
