Throne of Serpents - 92%

Apollyn, June 6th, 2005

Abused Majesty plays the combination of uncompromising black metal and melody , more quiet moments and a really good composition of the songs. My compatriot didn't make it easy for themselves, because for this debut record, 'Serpenthrone', they immediately decided to make it a concept album (based on a Polish myth about a serpent king). As the CD progresses, the similarities with Emperor become less striking, especially the solos are too conventional. But this isn't necessarily a bad thing because together with the very present keyboards and the three different vocalists that are used, it gives Abused Majesty a distinctive identity of their own. We're going to hear a lot more of this band if they continue the path they have chosen. Excellent release.
I could recommend this relese to all Emperor and Dimmu Borgir fans.
