Necromantia - The Sound Of Lucifer Storming Heaven
It was many years ago I heard of Necromantia for the first time. I bought a sampler which included one of their songs. Back then I wasn’t very impressed. The song was quite nice but the production wasn’t that good. And that was also the only song I knew by this band.
Now, many years later The Sound Of Lucifer Storming Heaven fell on my doormat.
 
The Sound Of Lucifer Storming Heaven… I was very curious how that would sound like. The band tried to make it clear with their first song with the same title as the album. Raging black metal with a lot of battle scene samples. I really liked the song, some neat guitar riffs and some nice orchestral arrangements combined with hateful voiced vocals. But on the other hand there is the production, which sounds very thin, it really misses dynamics. A pity, but after a while when I’d heard the album several times I got used to it.
 
All the compositions on the album are quite good. There is a lot of variety. Although the band uses some classical arrangements like some of the more well-known bands like Dimmu Borgir it doesn’t sound commercial. Necromantia knows where these parts would fit and when it would be overkill. They found the right balance to keep their music underground and to sound like no other band.
 
Although I got used to the production I still think it is a pity, it could have sounded so much better. Fortunately Necromantia’s compositions are good enough to make this album interesting enough to buy.
