Lecherous Nocturne – Behold Almighty Doctrine

Since their debut in 1997, Lecherous Nocturne have established themselves as a force to be reckoned with in the worldwide metal scene, landing a deal with Unique Leader Records on the strength of their self-titled EP and their desire to expand the already-extreme boundaries of thrash, black, and death metal. Their last full-length album "The Age Of Miracles Has Passed" delivers a killing stroke and then slips away before you even have a chance to brace yourself. Lecherous Nocturne are poised to take the Metal world by storm. After the success of their debut release "The Age Of Miracles Has Passed" on Unique Leader Records and an extensive tour history, blackened death metal juggernauts Lecherous Nocturne are set to bring forth their highly anticipated release "Behold Almighty Doctrine".

The album starts really heavy. Lecherous Nocturne offers a really heavy mix of death/grind. High technical, and most of the time in a high speed. Sometimes are some breaks in the songs, straight blast beast and at times some groove passages. The black metal part, as in the self-description is on a minor level.

The album sounds a little confusing at the first time. "Behold Almighty Doctrine" needs more listenings to catch fire. All the songs fit to their own style, and the band makes no compromises. Only 'Prelude No2' is an exception, a short piano intermezzo, which seems a little inappropriate. The level is very high constantly, so this album is nothing for easy listening. The sound is very heavy, mixing is absolutely ok, and timing is perfect. In point of general style the band reminds into old school technical death metal, influenced by grind. All in all this album is really cool but needs more than 2 runs to get into the bands flow.

For fans of Suffocation, old Deicide and technical death metal absolutly ok, all others will get a headache!
