Lecherous Nocturne: Adoration of the Blade

Essentially an EP due to it's overall length of less than 30 minutes, the latest from Lecherous Nocturne, Adoration of the Blade, is nontheless a brutal display of technical death metal that fans of Morbid Angel, Nile, Cannibal Corpse, Behemoth, Immolation, Suffocation, and Cephalic Carnage need to hear. The core members of the band, guitarists Christian Lofgren & Chris Lollis, and singer Hohenstein, are joined here by Nile guitarist/vocalist Dallas Toler-Wade on drums (and yes folks, he can CRANK on some super-human black metal styled blast beats) and Monstrosity bass player Mike Poggione. This is relentless, technical death metal with touches of black metal thrown in for good measure, led by the growling throat of Hohenstein who gurgles his way through killer extreme metal tunes like "The Divine Wind" and "Singe Este Viata" with maniacal furor while his bandmates break the speed of sound and pummel the listener senseless. One of the highlights here is the complex riff monster "A Path to a Deity", a truly brutal piece with some of the most intense and intricate guitar work that you are going to hear in death metal. The one slight problem with this album though is that every track after a while starts to sound the same, as there's no real variance on the speed or brutality level. Perhaps the near half hour running time is perfect for an album like this, as I'm sure 45 minutes of the lethal attack of Lecherous Nocturne would simply pulverize you into complete submission.
