Ensepulchred: Suicide In Winter's Moonlight

The American Midwest (Indiana) brings us a relatively new Black Metal outfit called Ensepulchred, originally formed in 2005. Late last year Autopsy Kitchen Records re-released the bands 2006 album Suicide In Winter's Moonlight which is a creepy sounding collection of sixteen songs which musically comes across more like a B-Horror movie soundtrack than a traditional sounding Black Metal album. The vocals, if you want to call them that, are handled by Johnathan Shipley, and to be quite honest his gargling, raw throat delivery is pretty much the only amusing thing about Suicide In Winter's Moonlight. There are pretty much no guitars to speak of as the band instead allows a heavy dose of simplistic and repetitive sounding keyboards along with a drum machine to dominate the mix. This lack of diversity renders the songs interchangeable and as such the act begins to wear thin pretty quick, certainly before well before you reach track number sixteen. Pass on this one.
