"Justus Ex Fide Vivit" (Southern Lord; 2007)
Reviewed by Mike SOS
Unholy music from the Holy Land comes via Tangorodrim, the Israeli act whose punkified black metal assault will probably leave a bad taste in the mouth of those in search of the next none-more-black entity.
This tandem switches off between cavernous doom rhythms and standard black metal tempos throughout the six tracks well enough, creating a bleak atmosphere that maintains the lo-fi and aesthetics of the early pioneers of the genre.
Throw in some early Venom, Hellhammer, and Celtic Frost (and a multitude of empty bottles of alcohol) and the recipe for the monotonous din created on "Justus Ex Fide Vivit" is pretty apparent.

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.
