Order Of Ennead is somewhat of a continuation of
Council Of The Fallen,
as core members Kevin Quirion and Scott Patrick formed this band
following COTF's demise.
But while Council stuck more to the tried-and-true Tampa brutal death
metal style, Order Of Ennead is decidedly more black in nature, borrowing
from the Norwegian style but still incorporating death metal tendencies
The vocals are solidly hateful blackened rasps, and the impressive
Steve Asheim deserve a mention as well.
This is solid, intense, extreme death/black metal, pummelling without
being overly technical, and expertly produced -- an impressive debut.
