The debut full-length is the first ever recording of Law of Contagion, a Portuguese one-man project created by Ishkur, who is known for his work within Sonneillon BM and Nefret.
With Law of Contagion Ishkur wanted to unleash some dark and brutal Luciferian Black / Death Metal to glorify the early days of this kind of music. When we talk Black Metal on this album; the Second-Wave Black Metal tremolo riffs along with some slower haunting riffs are right in the Black Metal department. On “Heralding the Insane” there is a Mayhem’s “De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas” vibe going on at times and on “Litany”, maybe on purpose concerning the title, it has a Necromantia played by guitars feeling throughout the song. Death Metal? Well, the dark vocals are there and you will hear some doomy Death Metal riffs as well.
Add the dark atmosphere and the combination of all factors work well and results in a decent debut. (Ricardo)
