Dødsfall – Djevelens evangelie

In our first issue I described their second album “Inn i Mørkets Kongedømme” as a “more clear, less grim” version of the Norwegian Black Metal style during the 1990s. I was pleasantly surprised but it also creates expectations for future releases. Well, the wait didn’t last long. “Djevelens Evangelie” did not became the continuation of quality I was hoping for. This has nothing to do with new vocalist Adramelech (Svarthaueg) nor the lyrical topics about Darkness, Black Hymns to Satan, Black Magic and Death. It’s the musical sucker punch that I’m missing. Maybe because the sound is less 1990s and more “nowadays”, or the slightly different approach concerning the riffs and the songs as a whole (again less 1990s), but at the end I can only think “not a bad album at all, but I expected so much more”. Perhaps a compliment towards their earlier work. (Ricardo)
