Sarcophagus - _For We... Who Are Consumed By Darkness..._
(Pulveriser Records, 1996)
by: Adam Wasylyk (7 out of 10)
Sarcophagus are a four-piece from Chicago who play their God hating style of black metal with death metal influences. Containing 9 tracks and clocking in at a very short 31 minutes (especially for a black metal album!), the quality of the music is top-notch with excellent production (again, especially for a black metal album!). Songs worthy of mention are "Godless" (with both death and black vocals), "One Black Autumn" (which contains great use of keyboards), and Agony's Tale. The only criticism I can think of is its length, as what you compromise in having a short record is a lack of substance in the songs and the "as soon as you're getting into it... it's already over" feeling. Even with this in mind the music itself is worth the money paid for it. Black metal fans should check this out.
