I think this question has been asked a thousand times but i can't find any answer... Does anybody know if the chants on Deathspell Omega's Carnal Malefactor were actually composed by them or are they taken from another composer?

I doubt that chants are composed by themselves. Probably just sampling like with other religious black metal bands from the same era, like Malign. But if anyone have some info, i would like to know too.

AFAIK, Si Monumentum uses recordings of Russian orthodox chruch ceremonies...

This, they pitched it down a bit and added up a little more reverb.

While we are at it, does anyone knows the origin of the First Prayer sample? I remember somebody mentioning that it's some Arabic prayer but it sounds more like Hebrew to me. Any inputs?

If I recall correctly, it is a Hebrew prayer played backwards.

Haven't listened to DSO for a while, but as far as I remember in that song they used this hymn:

though that's a bit different version.

It doesn't sound backwards.

In fact, I just loaded it into audacity and reversed it, and it sounded backwards then :puppy:

The guitars are reversed in the second part, but not the chant.

By the way, First Prayer could arguably be DSO's best track....so eerie.

Yeah.

It was definitely the most listened to track on that album for me. I always found it relaxing.
