Album review for DEATH FETISHIST - Clandestine Sacrament




Clandestine Sacrament is the debut full length album from Black Death Metal band Death Fetishist with two EP's released earlier in February this year. Formed in 2015 by Matron Thorn of Ævangelist, Benighted In Sodom, PrÆternatura and G. Nefarious of Panzergod and Daemoniis ad Noctum these guys are certainly no strangers to creating atmospheres of darkness and mayhem. With influences from ambient, black, death and other music; this album explores the many dark corners of the depraved human mind, inverting all that is good and worshiping all that is unholy.

"Somewhere in the rift between madness and catharsis is the true nature of Death Fetishist."

Clandestine Sacrament is a truly dark album with hypnotic and unorthodox guitar riffs that may induce a trance like state along with a more than casual lust for chaos and bad behaviour. The atmosphere of the album is very choked up; not in a claustrophobic way, but more in a Michael Hutchence hanging from a door knob kind of way... auto-erotic asphyxiation followed by accidental death by misadventure. In excess indeed; beware thrill seekers! No one ever catches the dragon, though they keep trying. Clandestine Sacrament has an aura of the darker sides of sexuality, evoking images of BDSM, studded leather and esoteric sex magick in dark ritual chambers where all fetishes are catered for by mysterious hooded vixens and relentless, alluring temptresses.
