Militant Black Metal - 87%

LordBelketraya, February 22nd, 2006

After hearing "De Principii Evangelikum" I was blown away by the extreme speed and blazing fast drums along with the demonic voice of MkM. One of (If not) the most important thing in this genre is to have a different or unique sound in which when its played on your computer, radio, etc is that the music is identifiable. The drums may be a bit repetitive throughout this album but are important to the sound of the band. Aside from Mkm's excellent voice the drums are what stands out to me when I hear an Antaeus album.

To me this is what makes them Antaeus and also the main reason why I call it Militant Black Metal, Marduk may be a more War Black Metal sound, the two send an urgent feel to their music but both being different at it as well.
This is a group that I instantly liked, the agression, technicality, demonic sound of MkM just caught my ears right away. Its music that makes you headbang immediately, a complete onslaught of awesome black metal thrown in your direction. If you like fast, raw, sick black metal this is for you
