Arkhon Infaustus - Orthodoxyn
One again a band, or should I say label, accompanied a record with a very dry biography put together by a number of not too interesting facts…or well, the fact that Arkhon Infaustus first demo was called In Sperma Infernum definitely caught my attention in a positive way. Lets see whether they’ve grown up with the release of this fourth full length record.
 
These French guys make a mix of some slow grooving death with black metal and the latter is the main genre of the band; black is what the band and music breathe. The songs consist of long spun out riffs which drag you drown in its misery while the records proceeds. A lot of midtempo riffs pass by in Grave death metal style, not too many blast beats are used; they only appear where necessary and this is a hallmark which Arkhon Infaustus controls superb. Overall Orthodoxyn simply is a high standard black/death metal record, without any bullshit and gore elements; in spite of what the names of their first demos implicated. ‘Le Particule de Dieu’ is the only song which is sung in their native tongue and many times this adds to the sincerity of a record, which this song proves to be right once again.
 
Arkhon Infaustus made an excellent death/black record on which little critique is possible. Good tempo variations and no overdose of blast beats or double bass drums make this album extremely well listenable and gets to you more and more during the record.
