Setherial - _From the Ancient Ruins_
(Napalm Records, 2003)
by: Quentin Kalis (7 out of 10)
Technically, this is not a new Setherial album; it is comprised of a couple of songs from the _Hell Eternal_ recording session plus their demo _A Hail to the Faceless Angels_. These reject songs from _HE_ may have been something special when _HE_ was released back in 1998 -- but that is unlikely; even then there were far too many bands peddling substandard and derivative black metal with the rough edges smoothed out for this to attract anything more then the most cursory interest. The demo tracks are a better prospect, dating from the mid-nineties, and featuring the raw guitars and misanthropic atmosphere characteristic of that era. Even so, they remain demo tracks and nothing more than a promise of greater things to come.
