With their 2nd full-length “In Purge There is No Remission”, Ordinance from Finland doesn’t bring the typical and more common Finnish sound you hear recently, but are aiming for a more dissonant dark atmosphere.
So don’t expect any Satanic Warmaster, Azaghal or Sargeist kinda Black Metal while listening to this album, but think more of the Icelandic scene as well as Deathspell Omega…and to keep it Finnish, a bit of Clandestine Blaze (the grim vocals for examples). During the faster parts, for example on “Gathering Wraiths”, the influence of Mayhem’s “De Mysteriis Dom. Sathanas” comes to the surface concerning the riffs.
If you’re looking for the more raw and melodic Finnish kind of Black Metal, you better look somewhere else, but if you’re a fan of the aforementioned bands and scene, you get a dark yet clear produced piece of Black art. (Ricardo)
