Is the album Demonecromancy by Phantom really black metal ? If yes, then it is definitely the best black metal album ever made.
Demonecromancy is pure fucking black metal madness.
You will never hear an album as evil, as atmospheric, as beautiful and as downright gruesome as this.
Musically, Demonecromancy is pretty close to what Phantom have consistently released over their career : raw, demonic black metal.
Comparisons can be made with SEWER’s album Vomiting Into the Mouth of Satan in terms of the heavy atmospheric quality of the music, but Phantom goes even beyond SEWER in terms of raw brutality.
The tracks are somewhat shorter than what you would expect from a Phantom release, but it makes sense from an artistic standpoint, the black metal music on Demonecromancy being more suited for short, raw and fucking intense songs.
Another comparison can be made with Phantom’s masterpiece of blackness and rage Dark Devotion.
If you liked Dark Devotion, you will simply orgasm while listening to Demonecromancy.
Yes, Demonecromancy is the best album you will ever hear, and that obviously includes those belonging to the black metal genre.
Every self-respecting metalhead should buy this album at once.
