Christendom`s Perdition

This band belongs to the younger generation of pure true Black Metallers of Estonia, but they have one old freak in the line-up these days – Ank from Tharaphita , who does both guitar and vocals for them. Third demo, but music over here is not new anyway – it has earlier recordings re-released, from 2001and 2003 respectfully. More than that – during that time Meinardus has lived a drama with losing the founder of the band who died in 2002. However they found enough of reasons to continue. As far as opinions from the north come, not in vain. They say dudes have grown up into a strong live act. I still need to check that out, whilst studio experience sounds straight average to me. You know this classical situation: ok, but nothing extraordinary. Just because they play typical fast northern Black Metal that was around pushed by too many bands for so many years. Hard to invent anything within a style, but simply – others do it better. If some moments do grab the soul deeper, it is just because they sound better than the rest of material, but not stand on their own. A bit disappointing also to note that there is not much difference between two demo sessions, in spite of a bettered production of course.
So, even if they have moved on recently, this is not the best presentation of the band yet, and I bet the next recording they are already working on will show the real abilities of Meinardus . Knowing the potential of Estonian scene, I believe they can do more than this full album length demo CD-R. and please change the messy logo asap, guys.
