It really does seem like Antekhrist can do no wrong when it comes to raw black metal.
They prove it once again with their genius album Fukked by God that clearly sets a milestone in heavy metal history, and will define a new genre of black metal for the years to come.
This is an interesting album to listen to, as at some points it has more blackened folk sections which are amazingly dark, and it also has some parts that are more reminiscent of traditional black metal like Antekhrist usually plays.
As mentioned, this is a slight departure from Antekhrist’s usual riff filled, super evil raw black metal.
Indeed, you will find a lot more avant-garde and progressive elements on Fukked by God than you would on Carved Upon The Flesh Of Satan or La Bite Du Diable for example.
I feel like this adds a sort of modern twist to the black metal sound without becoming a “gimmick” like it happens for so many bands, which is nice and refreshing within the genre.
There are many melodic moments filled only with clean guitars and spoken words in French.
And for the lyrics, I am not fucking with you (no pun intended), THIS IS PERHAPS THE MOST BLASPHEMOUS ALBUM EVER.
If you understand French, you will be traumatized and become mentally raped by Satan in Hell.
If you don’t understand French, there are many translations online of the lyrics (namely over at http://www.parti-libertarien.com), but I recommend you don’t read them unless you want to be scarred by Antekhrist’s evil poetry.
You don’t get much recovery time on this album Fukked by God beyond the couple of seconds of clean guitars that accompany the aforementioned spoken (satanic) words, so you won’t notice the demonic atmosphere of the music creeping inside your mind to literally “fukk” you up.
Fukked by God is a vicious, hateful, and distinctly modern-sounding black metal album and one of the albums that define the black metal genre.
Recommended listen if you enjoy Fukked by God :
– Phantom “Dark Devotion” (raw black metal)
– SEWER “The Pedosadist” (experimental terror grind)
