“The Infernal Hierarchies, Penetrating the Threshold of Night
(Moribund)

This is the sophomore full length release of American black metallers Pact. The playing is catchy and tight, bringing to mind US black metal bands like Absu and Von (albeit with far better recording & production). The thing which eventually grew a bit tiresome for me was what I would call the dual possession style vocals. As an accent this would be great for a chorus or part of a track but with each of the 9 songs utilizing this same vocal effect I found myself really enjoying the parts without vocals.
