For many young musicians, gates of hell open with black metal hymns uttered once by early Norwegian scene tenors. Trying to act like Euronymous or Fenriz, these little rascals write their first songs reproducing revered patterns found on 1990s cult albums. Itís almost a rite of passage, but only a few of these infernal troubadours manage to give a truly personal touch to a music copied a thousand times. It is therefore with great conviction that the young Italian band Exterminas begins its artistic career with an album drawing its source deep into the second wave of Norwegian black metal.
Admit at the outset that Seventh Demoniacal Hierarchy does nothing to disrupt orthodox black metal particularly rigid frameworks. It has however several qualities on which we can argue. First, I noted a very good song writing effort. Listeners are offered solid songs, populated with catchy riffs, especially on War Hymn, best title on the album. Itís also interesting to underline the care taken to change register for each songs. Thus, When All Becomes Nothing is more depressing, Demigod and the title track are fast and rhythmic, and A New Beginning starts slowly and grows with a strong doom influence.
As for the general atmosphere, it certainly resembles Darkthrone early efforts, but without this lo-fi sound that could discourage the less passionate. The group opts instead for a quality dry mix, evoking especially 1980s thrash metal.
Launching a first album is a bandís major life event. Members of the latter certainly do not want to miss their shot, sometimes resulting in additional song writing caution, thus trivializing music. Exterminas avoids this pitfall and gives us a very good first impression with a traditional black metal record, of course, but made with an undeniable passion.
