† And then the Curse swept the Earth

A year after their first release, "Urarctica Begins" we got Ensorcelor's "Crucifuge". It features only two long songs.. and sounds quite different from its predecessor, this one is more cohesive. The atmosphere is less doleful and grieving, replaced by the feeling of something inevitably sinister and menacing. Skin deep fear creeps out of every note of this album and permeates the listener's mind. The production is also a bit better than before. Better as in dirtier and more obnoxious, that is. This release was quite a good surprise and just hope that Ensorcelor keep on bringing more good stuff like this.  Reinvigorating and never boring venomous sludge. "Crucifuge" is indeed a name to fit in your top list of 2011. North american/Canadian friends can buy this splendid LP here, meanwhile european friends can grab this slice of sludge here.

  1. gilead media and analog worship also have copies for those in the US that don't want to pay the ridiculous canadian shipping prices. this is one of may favorites for the year, maybe even top five.

  2. You're right, Gilead Media is also the place where you can achieve this album. Top Five only? I'm going for Top20, if not more, or so this year..

  3. oh there are way more than five albums that top this year. i just meant of all of them, this one is up in the top 5 range.
