Catholicon - _Lost Chronicles of the War in Heaven_
(Rage of Achilles, 2001)
by: Kirsty Buchanan (3 out of 10)
Fantastically blasphemous. If a little obsessed with the coming of the millennium. Not for nothing is the backing vocalist named Blasphyre. However attractive the unholy approach is, the band lose out to poor production and unfortunate lack of musical ability. The vocal style is intense and imposing, but the music takes a back seat and falls somewhat by the wayside -- which strikes me as a hideous waste of talent, as both the vocals and the synth work is some of the strongest I've heard. It is purely regrettable that that is where it ends for Catholicon; they could do much more were they to develop further beyond the excited use of synthesisers.
