KARNE – Symposium of Torments
If you are on the lookout for a compelling and repulsive black metal record, look no further than ”Symposium of Torments”. Not only is it a cool addition to the French black metal canon, but it is interesting and captivating nearly all the way through. Only a couple of songs fall by the wayside and fail to ignite any real sense of excitement or danger, but in the overall perspective, Karne have managed to craft an album that is a raging vortex of madness on the one hand and utterly disciplined and structured on the other. Definitely one to check out for all you lovers of pure musical carnage.
