Thornspawn - _Consecration of Evil Flesh_
by: Paul Schwarz (2 out of 5)
OK, let's not beat about the bush. This is just about all you'd expect from the title and band name. Black metal in the vein of such artists as Marduk and Dark Funeral. Mostly fast black metal riffs accompanied by continuous blast beats. However, this is actually very well produced, especially for a demo band. It contains the usual fare of offensive blasphemous lyrics ("Licking the Virgin Mary's Cunt" being a notable song title with accompanying offensive lyricism) and corpsepainted participants with ridiculous pseudonyms ("Swornghoul -- Infernal Archgoat of Blood War"). Though the songwriting is far from innovative, there are worse bands in the underground and less inventive ones. Thornspawn are brutal and at present this is their most impressive asset.
