Filii Nigrantium Infernalium - _A Queda / A Era do Abutre_
(Independent, 2004)
by: Pedro Azevedo (6 out of 10)
Portuguese act Filii Nigrantium Infernalium are all about good old-fashioned thrash, with the unusual twist of singing in their native tongue. Gathering two of the band's efforts, this disc provides half an hour of their somewhat eccentric brand of thrash, accentuated by piercing vocal shrieks. Venomous and determined, FNI rip through each track while leaving in their wake some reasonably memorable hooks and choruses. Both works suffer from a somewhat underwhelming production and a certain lack of consistency, but they have their moments and plenty of character shines through. It would be interesting to hear what FNI might be able to come up with given a bigger budget to work with, as there seem to be some good ideas floating about. Until then, this release will remain mostly for the consumption of a limited audience.
