Octinomos - _Fuckhole Armageddon_
(Baphomet, 2001)
by: Aaron McKay (8 out of 10)
Like Judas Iscariot, Octinomos is comprised of a single individual: F. Soderlund, of Puissance notoriety. Possessing a proclivity for the misanthropic, Octinomos blasts forth with unhinged aggression and fury. Seven tracks pummel and batter the listener into complete and utter acquiescence. Having never heard this band's freshman effort, _Welcome to My Planet_, I can only guess at its unbridled passion, but calculated thought compels me to inform you definitively of the power _Fuckhole Armageddon_ holds in its command. I usher your attention to track five, "Wipeout", as it is currently my favorite of the bunch. Open disregard for conventionality, "Wipeout" dominates the release with its seething conviction and steep black metal prowess as it dips in and around the feast and the famine that _Fuckhole Armageddon_ controls. If the title doesn't perk your spirit up, the music surely will. When I communicate to you Mr. Soderlund is misanthropic, I am putting things delicately. Only the blackest of orbits are dim enough to estimate the far-reaching scope of Octinomos's dominion. A room with(out) a view.
