VORKREIST “Sigil Whore Christ”

VORKREIST
“Sigil Whore Christ”
(Agonia Records)
The French black metal scene might not be the greatest in size but it has over the years brought us some of the more innovative artists. Some more successful than others but all with their integrity intact. Vorkreist might be on to album number 5 but this is my first real encounter with them. It is with some trepidation but also with some anticipation that I approach this album. Will it be a massive let down or will I be positively surprised. I have to go with the latter. While no Deathspell Omega immersed in its own weirdness this is pretty tricky black metal that is far from straight to the point. But that is also what adds to the charm of it. You gotta be prepared for all the twists and turns this journey takes you. If you have problems with music that doesn’t take you from point A to point B then you’d be well advised to stay clear of this one. If you like music that challenges you and feel that Swedish bands like Funeral Mist, Ofermod or Watain are the best thing to have happened since sliced bread then Vorkreist will be for you.
