The Law of The Talon...
Draconis Blackthorne | The Haunted Noctuary | 03/30/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The circa XXIX Anno Satanas classic unleashing of Lex Talionis demonstrates absolute raw power & that all-consuming focus on The Dark Side; a.k.a. "Evil" contemplation - that feeling whch seems to produce an eerie ambiance overall - the liberating Luciferian rebellion, which strengthens the warrior spirit. There is definitely a higher level of violence & aggression herein, calling for a "Slaughterization For Satan" - the extermination of blindlighters in the spirit of Satanimal, & in "Purification Day", the mindless lower humanoids, as in 'Prolecaust'. "Voices Within" really manages to capture homicidal schizophrenia - "...voices within, the demons tell me I belong to them...", & much like "Inner Beasts", which is the dementia arising from within, that is to say, of a microcosmic origin, whereas a song like "The Entity" dramatizes an outward force of erstwhile "possession" invading from a macrocosmic origin. I found "I.N.R.I." to be quite a moving & Powerful piece, supremely blasphemous by the identifying label placed allegedly, or at least as depicted from Catholic/JC propaganda, said to have meant "Jesus Christ, King of the slaves", as a final mockery of the fictional delusional character of the nazarene, which was a plagearized synthesis / composite of previously existing traits from more ancient religious depictions, from many of the supposed deeds committed, to even the popular general aesthetic the myth has assumed. As a side note, two more humorous translations / acronyms have emerged: 1. "I'm Nailed Right In!"; & 2. "Irresponsible Neurotic Ridiculous Idiotology" - personally, I opt for the latter as being more apt. This compendium release entitled collectively "Lex Talionis / Satanic Victory", unfortunately lacks the intros which were previously available in the origical release "Hail Victory", which, translated into German, reads "Sieg Heil", which intially garnered a bit of controversy in Europe because of the said translation. Acheron is not, nor ever has been connected to Naziism. It would be a principle of The Art of Deception to utilize certain infamous icons to attract a certain amount of attention, while not necessarily personally resonating with their acquired meaning. {See Draconian Dictums #9}. The "Intros" are an exquisite blend {by HP Gilmore} - the haunting quality greatly compliments the cantibles of quite possibly one of the heaviest bands in existence; he had previously provided instrumentations & narrations of The Nine Satanic Statements; really just splendid. I would suggest HP Gilmore release a CD featuring his works alone, which I Am sure The Infernal Empire would benefit & appreciate greatly. As a matter of fact, I have these works arranged in My own songlist, marvellously played & displayed through I-Tunes {Infernal Tunes}, which Satanic comrades have greatly appreciated & coveted, & this, combined with Dr. LaVey's "Satan Takes A Holiday" & "The Satanic Mass", particularly "Hymn of The Satanic Empire {Battle Hymn of The Apocalypse}", combined with Rev. Paradise's "Subterranian Sinema", as well as the CoS movie; "Ave Satani" from The Omen, all to form quite a magnificent songlist which provides for a marvellous diabolical meditation. The cover features a metalized / vulcanized rendition of the logo, super-imposed upon a customized Baphomet seemingly arising up from the center of the earth / Hell - quite a Belialian manifestation. Also featured in this opus, are embossed classic scenes of Hell & damnation, with various demons tormenting damned souls, in an orgy of pleasure, pain, & dispair. Overall, here we have a complete package - The Infernal Trinity of Malefik Musick - i.e., Superior Musick, Lyricks, & aesthetic presentation. Highly reccommended."
I enjoyed..

"I enjoyed this very much.. The haunted Noctuary is right. Vampires flying..Death metal grinding with melodic guitars, classic guitar riffs and chord progressions mixed in with originality..Heartpounding King Diamond guitar knowledge, Slayer "Hell Awaits" kind of sound, Yeah! Let's go get a beer Satanists and Order of the Black Dragon followers. Druids would party to this. Tops in the Death metal Genre. Also reminds me along with "Those Who Have Risen" album by Acheron, of Amon: Feasting the Beast by Deicide."
