Review: Order Of Ennead – Order Of Ennead [2008]

Amazon Order of EnneadOrder of Ennead is a bold blackened death metal troupe whose latest eponymous offering showcases a band with a serious multifaceted extreme metal strike. Featuring Deicide skin basher Steve Asheim, this quartet’s scope explores the vastness of both the forests in the Netherlands and the catacombs in Stockholm with a diabolical rasp and an adventurous sense of composition leading the caravan (“The Culling”). Tracks like “Conferring With Demons” tackles glacial Nordic nuances with honor and finesse while “As Long As I Have Myself I Am Not Alone” demonstrates the squad’s crushing technical prowess and ability to balance out a lengthier track with intriguing twists. Add in an excellent usage of piano throughout the disc, most notably on the closer “Dismantling an Empire” and this colossal concoction of forward-thinking metal combines a solid amalgamation of styles and an unquestionable vitriolic virtue to create an enjoyable listening experience for those who dwell in the dark. -Mike SOS
