Ah, the devilish beauty of pure evil in the form of Metal music. The wonders of the raw rage delivered by a multifaceted band as Dødsferd, a band whose career is so initiated in the black arts. A band we had the honor and pleasure to check out how versatile it can be with experimental albums as “Asphyxiating Late Night Sessions” or “Suicide and the Rest of Your Kind Will Follow II.” Or as one of the most important milestones of the Second Wave of Black Metal of “Skotos.” The impression the initial moments “Restoration of Justice” had on me I can’t tell. A track that commences so many touches of Venom with that insane, and simple, drumming inviting the fan to headbang. The beauty of the speed of light velocity here with the Blackened Speed Metal slants is blatant. So is the album. If I may, one contundent candidate for album of the year.

I don’t know if it’s just me, but when I hear an album like “Wrath” I feel such emotion that is hard to describe in words. Very few songs had this effect on me. One of the was Slayer’s “Evil Has No Boundaries.” The vibe is just about the same, if you know what I mean. After listening all the album I feel the speed of tracks as “Heaven Drops With Human Filth” do make a difference. To some extent, as far as I understand Black Metal, it has to be fast as hell. Of course, my understanding of Black Metal isn’t much, but this track is really something remarkable. As all the album. And then comes the blasting “Failure Αblaze in Υour Εxistence” with its Motörhead taste in the drumming. Venom and Motörhead homages in the same album! Can it get better?

I praise the raw energy that comes from “Wrath,” an album which honors its tittle. I also praise the varied and so technical drumming. My dear child of the night might experience such a thrill in each track. It’s such a pitty the name of the drummer wasn’t revealed. Such a pity. The drumming gave this album its astonishing grip adding to it some violence and force – such as Exciter’s “Violence & Force” used to do. Highly recommended album. Both, I mean, “Wrath” and Exciter’s.
