Unhuman Disease - De Templi Autem Veteris Serpentis (2016)

Previously on OPIUM HUM:
Unhuman Disease - Black Creations of Satan (2009)

The latest and best full-length from one of the US' finest. As evil and raw as ever -- OK, maybe slightly less raw -- but with more ritual and atmosphere, and a greater sense of songcraft. My 23rd favorite black metal record of 2016. Incidentally, I've been revisiting a lot of the stuff on that list, so expect more from it in the coming weeks.

Track listing:
1. Maleficent Devoutness
2. Obscurity of Invocation
3. Inner Ascension to Incandescence
4. Behold the Magnificence of Satan
5. Accursed Ritual
6. Illuminated Eternal
7. Holy Flames of Perdition
8. De Templi Autem Veteris Serpentis

The sinister calling
