"IHVH" (Debemur Morti; 2011)
Reviewed by Mike SOS
French black metal squad Rex Mundi manages to make a mark within a confined genre as exhibited on "IHVH."
Unquestionably draped in misanthropic malaise passed down from the raw and relentless elite such as Marduk, Immortal, and Mayhem, this re-released seven-track affair voraciously conveys vitriolic venom with a flurry of unorthodox elements for added dread and despair.
Championing the combination of throat-ripping lead vocals, barrages of hypnotically redundant buzzing riffs and hellacious percussive blasts from the depths of hell while a menagerie of eerily captured chants solidify an already foreboding atmosphere, Rex Mundiís chilling debut affair contains all the evil one can endure before succumbing completely to the demonic world.

A classic. This record will kick your ass.
Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.
So-so. You've heard better.
Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.
Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
