In Aeternum - _Forever Blasphemy_
(Necropolis Records, 1999)
by: Pedro Azevedo (7 out of 10)
Swedish melodic black metal very similar to Naglfar's _Diabolical_ and also bearing some occasional resemblance to Dissection's _Storm of the Light's Bane_ is what In Aeternum offer with _Forever Blasphemy_. Fast, tight, aggressive, with plenty of memorable passages and with decent production courtesy of Studio Fredman, _Forever Blasphemy_ is one of those albums that isn't likely to disappoint most fans of the genre. On the other hand, however, not very surprisingly, the album contains practically no new ideas. The thematic monotony suggested by the album title doesn't help much, either, and while In Aeternum are no match for the genre's finest and can't keep things as constantly good as Naglfar, for example (since this is the band they sound closest to), _Forever Blasphemy_ is still a very competent and enjoyable album.
