Judas Iscariot
To Embrace The Corpses Bleeding
[Red Stream]

Absolutely great 6th full-length album released by Akenathen (the dark mind behind JI's music), this "To embrace..." is the logical follower of the "Dethroned..." MCD, even if it isn't as fast and furious. This one is more based on Norwegian-style than the other LPs, you can clearly hear the (early) KAMPFAR,(early) DARKTHRONE or even (early) EMPEROR's releases influence on that album. But don't be mistaken, this is a great opus released by a band who knows what Black Metal Quintessence is and not a stupid copy of these former Norwegian gods' old stuff... The best release done by JI, for sure (the fast parts are incredible) ! Hail JUDAS ISCARIOT ! Hail Akenathen !
