Fuck yeah they're essential when I'm sober too.  They'll be essential when I'm dead and gone.  Finis Malorum, Far Away from the Sun & The Coming of Chaos are timeless.  Thy Black Destiny is awesome as well -- but not "classic" in the sense as their first three.  Sacramentum has never released anything even remotely mediocre and for this they deserve praise.

Bloody hell, I've been trying download(ssshhhh) some Sacramentum with limewire without success.  I would love to purchase a CD but we have a relatively small Black Metal (and general extreme metal) scene in Australia.  IT SUCKS!!!!!  All I can find here is the BM bands you'd expect to find.  The same ones that you can download easily.

SOMEBODY HELP!!!!!!!


There are numerous local distros which carry both classics and new releases, though you won't find Sacramentum because I believe they're out of print.

http://art-infernal.com/joomla/
http://www.apocalyptor.com/mailorderlist.htm
http://www.obsidianrecords.com/obsidian/store/
http://www.thecavedistro.tk/

There are also plenty of stores such as Post-Mortem and Red-Eye if you happen to be located in Sydney, both of which I believe also do mailorder now. You can also find decent shit at JB Hi-Fi if you know what you're looking for.

You're a fool if you think our extreme metal scene sucks, but I wouldn't expect anyone who wastes time listening to Dimmu Borgir and Cradle of Filth to be familiar with Portal, Stargazer, Nazxul, Destroyer 666 and Mournful Congregation, to name a few. Try this and this to get started.

Now relax and quit whining.

I think http://www.asphyxiaterecordings.com is decent. As for Australian bands, Astriaal is definately one to check out.

Theyre good. Apparently not ANUS-standard as their thread in the Audiofile forum was removed. I think they kinda miss the point of bm too. Nevertheless, i still want to see them live. I couldve seen them last night (along with Suffocation) if i was 18 -.-

To add further to what Bereft said, im not sure if there is a Skinny's where you live, but then can order in a lot of underground stuff. Just yesterday i ordered a copy of Far Away From The Sun, as the guy said they can TRY get it. I know its out of print. Apparently, they havent sold a copy of it since 1997. (In Brisbane).
Is it likely that this album will ever get rereleased?

About the "ANUS approved": if it looks and smells like stupid new black metal, I usually trash it on sight unless someone provides reason not to do so (i.e. I'm not going to waste my time previewing everything that gets deleted).

The first full-length album from one of Sweden's best and brightest and as bonus, has been re-issued to include the now sought after "Finis Malorum" EP. Sacramentum has streamlined their sound to progress far & beyond Dissection's classic metal style with raging Dark Funeral-like power chords. (2005)


now im feeling like canceling that order i made yesterday...EDIT: I wont. Apparently cmdistro only ships to USA and Cannada (real mature. ANUS doesnt like Cannada?). See...Australia DOES suck for metal.

EDIT: Kontinual, nevermind...apparently Astriaal were never removed from Audiofile.

I think "Far Away From The Sun" sounds closer to Ancient "Trolltaar" and At The Gates "The Red In The Sky Is Ours" than to Dissection. It's a great album though I don't like their later works which do remind me of Dissection at times. Add to that the moronic image with the naked chicks and I'm done with this band.

I like the review the False Profit posted. Some music tells a story while other music consists solely of repeated slogans some of which stolen from tv-commercials. "The Somberlain" is a good album but it's much more thrash than the black metal finesse on "Far Away From The Sun" The only thing they had in common was the Iron Maiden influence. I'd rather compare this album to "The Red In The Sky Is Ours" because it approaches black metal the same way At The Gates crafted their songs out of death metal.

The lyrical ability of this band sets them apart from any metal band ever.  And that is not taking into accountability the instrumental talent of the band whatsoever, which is MIND BLOWING.
